Posted on

Every four years we are inundated with weird horse words like "dressage" (pronounced dress-sauge) and "eventing."

I'm still not sure what they actually mean, but I know it has something to do with riding a horse or the fancy word, ~~**equestrian**~~.

Equestrian is stereotypically seen as one of the more "vanilla"* sports of the Olympics, but this year horse riding got a whole lot more metal.

Yes, you read that correctly.

A horse named Summon Up The Blood.

He's ridden by a man in a top hat named Carlos Parra from Brazil.

Summon Up The Blood is apparently an angsty early-2000s teen...

Either way, it's clear. Summon Up The Blood is the best name of the Olympics.

Sweet dreams!
