Edward Gal and Hans Peter Minderhoud, who have been in a relationship for years, will be competing together in the team event for dressage at the Olympics this summer for the Dutch team. The two veterans of the equestrian sport have competed at the Olympics before, including at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro where they got fourth place in the team dressage event. At the 2014 World Championships, they got the bronze in the team event as well. While it’s rare for a couple to compete in the same team event together at the Olympics, they said dressage is a pretty LGBTQ friendly sport and some of the best competitors are gay.
