Big Jesus, Tiny Gymnasts and Ready-to-Rumble Horses: Team USA Social Media Roundup

The Olympic Games isn’t an “another day, another horse show” type situation. It’s an experience to be relished, a collection of colorful memories our Team USA riders will be able to call on for the rest of their lives.

Having arrived safe and sound, their horses hacked out and happy, we’re glad to see these elite athletes taking a moment to enjoy the sights and sounds of Rio de Janeiro — they’ve certainly earned it. And we’re also happy they’ve been posting snapshots to social for Stateside fans to share in the fun!

Here’s a roundup of their posts:
