One of those sports that are notoriously boring for people who don't do it to watch. It's really impressive when you see the training, discipline, and money that's behind it all, but going to a dressage show is comparable to watching grass grow, watching paint dry, or watching other people play golf.

And it's pronounced 'dres-SAH-jeh', not 'dress-ij'. If you're ever caught saying the latter by people in the know you could be crucified.
