equestrian eventing is a sport on horseback including three disiplines: dressage, showjumping and crosscountry. In each disipline you will recieve a number of penalties which will go towards your total score, determining who has won.
Equestrian sports are exciting for both spectators and participants. The different types of events are as varied as people's interests. Common equestrian events include English hunter and jumper shows, Western rodeos, polo matches, and thoroughbred racing.
English riding is a formal style that originates back to fox hunts in England. Riders typically wear breeches, tall leather boots, collared shirt and ratcatcher jacket. In competition, riders are judged on equitation, proper positioning of body and ability to control the horse through a series of gait changes, as well as ability to jump a series of fences on a course. Jumping competitions also include timed events, either on a fence course in an arena or through a natural course, where style is not as important as speed. Jumping events are the most interesting to watch and don't require knowledge of equitation to enjoy.
Western rodeos are always full of excitement. Riders race around barrels at full gallop, rope cows, and demonstrate other riding skills. Attire consists of full chaps, Western style shirt, and cowboy hat, with many competitors preferring flashy colors, designs and fringe. Rodeos are large events, and most often are held in the Western United States. However, the sport is growing among collegiate athletics, and many colleges and universities host rodeos as well as English shows, that make great spectator events at very low cost.
Polo teams are popular, with about 250 polo clubs in the United States. Polo is a team sport played on horseback. The goal is to move the polo ball down the field by hitting it with a mallet. Competitors wear tall leather boots, a team jersey, and knee guards.
Thoroughbred racing is known as the sport of kings for good reason. Champion racing horses cost in the millions of dollars, making ownership limited to the very wealthy. Horses are ridden by jockeys, who are distinguished by the colorful silks, or shirts, they wear. Horse tracks are located throughout the country allowing most people the opportunity to experience the thrill of racing and betting, if they desire.
Participating in equestrian activities can seem challenging without owning a horse, but facilities and farms offer lessons and riding opportunities for aspiring riders of all ages and experience levels. Whether the desire is to learn an equestrian sport, enjoy a pleasure ride in the outdoors, or watch fast-paced sporting events, equestrian opportunities can be found almost anywhere.
