From Endurance to Dressage
A friend shared this with me the other day, and I found it quite funny ...
When I saw it, I immediately cracked up laughing. W-T-F indeed. That's my daily experience. The G-M-O got me though. I sent Jill a text back asking her what it meant.
What I found so funny was that I immediately read the W-T-F top to bottom but read the G-M-O from bottom to top as though I was actually reading the letters around the court. Sometimes a joke is not as funny when someone has to explain it. This one was.
Of course, the cartoon is made even funnier by entering at the question mark and riding by the judge with an exclamation point. Yep. That about says it.
An NBD or an LOL could be mixed in to give you and your horse variety. But then again, maybe the judge would prefer a ROFLMAO!
About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
