Olympic Equestrian

Cruel and Unusual

… for the Fans

8/7/2012 12:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Do you suffer from insomnia? Have a hard time falling asleep? Enjoy watching humans get rewarded for accomplishments of hard working animals? The you're going to love Olympic equestrian ... the most boring "sport" ever created by man.

Seriously. We'd rather watch paint dry, and then try to remove it, then watch that "Bachelorette" guy huff said paint remover (allegedly).

You arrogant idiots. I was a huge fan of TMZ until i read this article, and watched the video. How dare you mock one of the most COMPLICATED partnerships in the olympic world. Horses are very complex animals, and riding them in said competitions is both dangerous, and requires a lot of skill. I DARE YOU To get out there and do it yourself, if you think it's that boring!

As a show jumper myself for over two decades, who went to the USET trials with my HORSE for this event -- you should know that what you've said here, has started a chain reaction of loss with your 'former' fans, in the equestrian comminuty.

For once, get your heads out of your asses, and realize what you've done!

Any equestrian sport costs hundreds-of-THOUANDS of dollars to do. Getting to the olympics is a phenominal feat, and you've just nailed your clan to the wall, by mocking us with such a dire lack of respect.

All the best, we're all done with you.

Why don't you guys stick to reporting the useless crap like which celebrity got thrown in jail or who's dating who. Sports and world news just obviously isn't your thing because if it was, you would know that this is one of the hardest sports anyone can possibly do. And I agree with the rest of these posts, if you think it's so boring, why don't you get on a horse and jump obstacles which are bigger than you. Or let's see you do any of these sports for that matter. I'm betting you probably couldn't do any of them. So just shut up and stick to what you know - which clearly isn't much.

This is one of the most distasteful and rude posts I've seen by TMZ. I was a big fan but not so much after this. The lack of respect for one of the most complex hard sports is sad.
