    Thanks, Johar. I hope to catch some of this. Dressage is a sport in which athletes can compete for quite a long time, and that's very gratifying to watch. This is another reason it's so great to watch some of the less well-known sports; besides getting to learn about a new sport, you get to see people who might not always fit your inner vision of what an athlete looks like, or people who come from countries you don't usually think of as sports giants.

    Canada's Ian Miller is competing at his 10th Olympics in show jumping at 65. With Big Ben long gone, Miller proves himself to be more than merely lucky to have such a fabulous horse.

    Dressage is soooooo hard! How do you train a horse to do all those gaits and look good doing it? Watch Totilas:
