Sport review

While dressage offers an unforgettably elegant and graceful aesthetic experience in which the rider and horse perform a choreographed routine accompanied by music, the jumping competition tests speed, power and control to ride through obstacles with decision and strength. Eventing is the most demanding. It combines dressage and jumping and also a long cross-country course with natural and artificial obstacles, considered to be one of the most dangerous events. In Lima 2019, this sport will be held at the Army Equitation School. The favorite is the US, considered a historic leader with 48 gold medals.

Keywords
Dressage: Is the groundwork for all other equestrian disciplines. Scores are awarded for individual
movement and overall routine.

Jumping: It takes place on a course with approximately 15 fences. Fences are designed to fall down if a horse hits them as they jump, resulting in a fault. The winner is the rider who completes the course within the set time and with fewest faults.

Eventing: It takes place over three days. The first day is dressage, the second day is a cross-country race and the third day is jumping.

Canter: An easy gait where the horse’s three legs are off the ground at once.

Half-pass: When a horse moves forward and sideways at the same time.

Piaffe: A highly elevated trotting movement performed on the spot.

Refusal: When a horse stops at a jump. This results in a fault/penalty points.

History

Equestrian is the only Olympic and Pan American sport in which humans and animals compete together. The beginnings of this sport go back to ancient Greece, more than 2000 years ago, when dressage was used to train horses for war. In England, during the 18th century, hunters taught their horses to jump obstacles. The discipline was later included in the Paris 1900 Olympic Games program with jumping events only. At first, equestrian was a competition for men only. However, since the Helsinki 1952 Olympic Games, women started competing in mixed events.
