Beezie Madden and Authentic during the 2004 Athens Games. The pair is back for the 2008 Games.
As the opening ceremonies for the 2008 Olympic Games get underway on Aug. 8, notables in the equestrian world had a celebration of their own. On Aug. 5, the equestrian events of the 2008 Olympic Games were presented to an array of distinguished guests gathered in Hong Kong to honor the achievements and sporting successes of all those who will be competing on the field in the upcoming days, and those who have helped behind the scenes to bring it all together.
HRH Princess Haya confirmed the great collaboration over the past two years. “This short timescale has made no difference to the preparations because of the close partnerships we have enjoyed working with such enthusiastic and dedicated associates. President Rogge has said that this Games is a historic moment for the Olympic movement and so it will be for horsesport.”
Neat. I can’t wait for the Olympic games!
I was wondering if anyone knew where I could watch the eventing. I know it’s on oxygen but I don’t have that channel!!! HELP!!!!

Why don’t you tell us when these events are happening and what channel they will be on? That would be very helpful. Your article doesn’t tell us much about the event. Thank You

I can’t wait to see the events. I hope I don’t read any news on here before I get to watch the results though.
NBC is airing most (if not all the equstrians and others events)LIVE on their website. (nbcolympics.com) The dressage was last night and I think today they are showing eventing! I cant wait to watch it!
