Olympic Games 1964 - Dressage

I love looking at old sports footage, and being a dressage rider this footage from 1964 is interesting. Things have changed, no? Bob and I often talk about how sports have changed -- years ago you had your Babe Ruth-types who drank, overate, and basically swung at the ball without a lot of coaching (I assume). Today we have computers to analyze performance/physiology and athletes, even kids, are coached to within an inch of their lives. It's all so technical now, and I have to think less fun. If things are a little rougher around the edges, it also looks a bit more fun and unprogrammed.
