Hey bloggers,

This week is an exciting week because it is the start of the 2012 London Olympic Games. This is the third time London has hosted the Olympic Games and what an amazing place to have the Olympics, especially for all the equine events. A fun fact--> Did you know that equestrian sports made its summer olympics debut in Paris, France at the 1900 Summer Olympics. Shortly after, the equestrian sports disappeared until 1912 but has appeared at every Summer Olympic Games since. Polo used to be an Olympic sport but today the Olympic equestrian disciplines are Dressage, Eventing and ShowJumping. The equestrian sport is huge in London, home to Zara Phillips, the queen's granddaughter, and many world renowned dressage, eventing and show jumping champions. Specifically focusing on the equestrian sports at the Olympics, we at Baker's want to send a huge shout-out and good luck wishes to all the Canadians competing :) As some of you know, not all the equestrian competitions and events are broadcasted on the common sports channels for the Olympics, World Equestrian Games etc. At Baker's, we have dvd's ranging from Dressage, ShowJumping and Eventing from the Olympic Games, Rolex FEI CCI****, Spruce Meadows and other World Championships. If you missed a specific competition or just want to watch a specific Olympic Games or World Equestrian Games at your convenience, come into Baker's to purchase those dvd's. Enjoy watching the Olympics everyone, and cheer on your country! :)
