HORSE-RIDING
If the horse is, as it is said, man's best friend, it is difficult to know exactly when the first events when man took to the saddle where held. It would seem it was the jousting tournaments of the middle ages.The first equestrian events as we know them today took place and the beginning of the 20th century.There are three different events within this discipline:In the dressage event, practiced individually and in a team, the rider must carry out a series of pre-determined figures.In the show-jumping event the rider and horse have, as the name suggests, a certain amount of obstacles to jump in the shortest time possible.Finally, the all-round competition includes three events in itself: dressage, show jumping and cross-country.Sweden, France and Germany are the leading nations for this discipline.
