Not only is it innovative for Dressuur Magazine to arrange for these two champions to sit down for candid conversation, but it is a surprise to see that it is available in English. I really feel that American dressage enthusiasts miss so much because of the language problem....but it is our problem, not theirs.
If you follow international dressage today, know that the world-stage rivalry between these two women helped make the sport what it is today. Go ahead and eavesdrop.
Thank you, Dressuur!

Fran Jurga's insight:
Set on 40 rolling acres where Edge of Woods Road meets Deerfield Road on the eastern end of New York's Long Island, Bright Side Farm is an equestrian facility owned by Matt and Annette Lauer on the former site of Frankenbach’s Deerfield Nursery.
@FranJurga writes: This article describes the commercial horse farm developed by the Today Show's Matt Lauer and his wife Annette. According to the article, Annette and daughter Romy will be riding at the farm, which will also have boarding and training clients. Matt, on the other hand, will play the role of "farmer" when he weekends in the Hamptons.
