Okay, so maybe not the worst idea ever. I’m not among the people who thinks that an Olympic Games in Boston would utterly ruin the city; I think there are a lot of good things that would come with it. On the other hand, I come down definitively on the HELL NO side when I think about adding the traffic and security concerns of the Olympics to an already overcrowded, relatively small, city.
That aside: check out the beginning! You guys, I know that grey horse! I’ve jump judged for him!
The rider playing Paul Revere is Andy Cook, who I’ve also jump judged for and who I’m pretty sure I did a course walk with at one point, since he sometimes works with my old trainer from Massachusetts.
Awesome video. I hope it doesn’t work.
(That said, the equestrian events are one of the few things I think would go resoundingly well for Boston. The USET, after all, was based in Hamilton, MA for many years, and there are two Advanced courses a short distance from the city at Groton House and Ledyard, though both would obviously need some serious upgrades.)

I don't think it'd ruin Boston. Sure, the city is small and has a lot of character but I think that would mean it would embrace all things Olympic even more. I'd love to see the Olympics back in the US soon.
