17. as a kid, I watched a number of Olympics

I can remember the Sphinks brothers, Sugar Ray Leonard, Boom-boom Mancini, Mark Spitz, Bruce Jenner, Mary Lou Retton, Nadia Comaneci, Alexi Greywall, Carl Lewis, even Eric Heiden from the boring winter Olympics, but I never knew that dressage was an Olympic event.

Apparently the Germans and the Dutch own that event http://www.databaseolympics.com/sport/sportevent.htm?sp=EQU&enum=150 . Although I was kinda confused about FRG winning medals before 1988. I thought maybe that was the French, or maybe French Gabon or Guinea. It couldn't be the BRD.

Heck, one of the awesome olympic champions even has a wikipedia page, although they do not say what FRH stands for.

Free Range Horse maybe? Free Ride Horse? Focking Rich Hobby?
