Horsemanship—the link between horse and rider
The current equestrian events consist of three different disciplines—dressage, eventing and jumping; and each discipline has both individual and team options. While the events are quite different from each other, the one thing that is necessary for success within all disciplines is a high level of trust between the rider and the horse, and this is part of the charm of the sport. Check out the eventing, the most challenging of the disciplines, where you will see the rider and horse competing in dressage, cross-country and jumping over the course of a few days. Alternatively, you can get tickets to the individual jumping or dressage events, the latter considered to be the most artistic of the equestrian sports. Germany currently holds the most gold medals over time in the equestrian events, with Great Britain, France and Sweden also fielding strong teams.

Horses and their part in the games
The first time horses appeared in the games was around 680 BC, when they were pulling chariots. Equestrian events only reappeared in the modern day multi-sport events in the summer of 1912 in Stockholm, and since then, they have held their own on the list of sports represented, with the events varying over the course of time. Traditionally, the equestrian events were only open to men, but by 1952, the event had opened up to women competitors—first the dressage event and, over time, the other disciplines.
