I was watching a re-run of the Olympic Equestrian Dressage event and I just can't help but be in awe to women equestrians or equestrienne. These athletes are so graceful yet so in command of their horses. A flick or twitch of the reign, and the mistress and the horse are completely one and in-tune. This sport may well be one of the most expensive of all sports. I had a niece who was just dying to learn how to ride a horse. Her parents are members of an exclusive polo club and equestrian lessons were also being offered at the club. My niece tried everything to have her mom say "yes" but my cousin never wavered in her decision. My cousin rationalized that she does not have the extra money to buy a horse, have it housed and fed, buy other horse supplements , not to mention a groom and a trainor. Well, I said, how much does a horse cost anyway. $20,000 for an "ok" horse, answered my cousin. Oh! I guess my niece just have to chose another sports.
