Horses get to Beijing, by a horse plane. It is just like an airplane. but it has portable stalls. There are usually 10-15 grooms. the grooms, will do anything, to make sure the horses drink. Like mix stuff in the the horses food. (apple juice, gaderaid, ect.) K<>M<>P
yes, horses and their riders compete in the Equestrian Events.
By boat or airplane
summer olympics: hunter, jumper, dressage and eventing(all three)
the horses got into the Olympics because its kinda a type of sport so they put them in there also the rest of the sports were in there swimming and foot ball boxing so riding horses takes skill and time too ride
The reining horses are probably between 15 and 16 hands. The eventing horses are much bigger. It is not uncommon for eventing horses to be 17 hands and over.
Women were allowed in the Olympics but only for the equestrian events. They were only allowed to ride the horses.
The nationality of the horse is really not important.
These people are called equestrians.
396 BC Cynisca of Sparta was permitted to enter her horses in the Olympics. Back then it was the owner of the horses not the riders that were awarded with victory in the Olympics. Cynisca won the 4 horse chariot race. In a bit of irony women were not allowed to watch the Olympics and she most likely never even witnessed her win. PCH- 1912
There are horse events in the Olympics: Show-jumping But a so called "Horse Olympics" where horses participate in dressage,show-jumping, cross country etc are called gymkhanas.
