The Faces of Rolex — Dressage Day 1

Andrew Nicholson and Calico Joe

I had a bird’s eye view of riders’ expressions as they left the Rolex stadium after completing their dressage tests today. It’s very interesting to watch their faces, as you can generally tell exactly how they felt about their tests based on the looks they share. Some riders — like Caitlin Silliman — looked jubilant after finishing their tests. Others, as you’ll see below, didn’t look so happy. But everyone who rode today should be extremely proud, especially the riders who are competing in their first four-star event at Rolex this weekend. Getting to Rolex is an incredible accomplishment that many aspire to but a precious few accomplish. Here are my favorite faces from Rolex today.
