Equestrian games or sports are those sports that involve horses. The word “horse” is derived from Latin. Horseshoe is derived from the Greek word meaning “shoe.” When Equestrians play these types of sports, they are generally playing a game with a long stick resembling a billiard cue or a baseball bat. The object of the game is to hit the opponent with the stick or barefoot.
There are many forms of Equestrian Sports. One of them is equestrian art. It is also known as riding. The reason why Equestrian riders use horseback riding masks and equestrian helmets is because the sport is both challenging and dangerous. Equestrian art involves the art of training horses and horsemanship.
Equestrian Sporting also includes Dressage and Equestrian Games like Dressage, Thoroughbred Cross-country jumping, and Equestrian fencing. Dressage is a form of contemporary equestrian exercise where the rider is required to move in a contorted state of mind while he or she is being spooked. In dressage, the rider must follow specific commands and perform tasks that include tying a series of knots, pulling a string, and reading a piece of text. The rider must learn how to use the appropriate reins for each type of activity.
Dressage was first introduced as a dressage competition for equestrian aristocrats at the Salon de la Haute Couture in France in 1794. The idea was to develop and perfect the skills of the rider by using a system of training where the horse was trained to be beautiful. Since its inception, dressage has been closely associated with the sport of horse riding. Dressage competitors can compete internationally and have made a significant contribution to the history of dressage.
Rodeo is one of Equestrian Sports that is both a pastime and an Olympic Sport. Rodeos can be competitive or non-competitive, but either way they involve horses that are conditioned for jumping distances. There are four disciplines in rowing – backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle and team rowing, and they all test the horse’s endurance, suppleness, kicking ability, balance, and rhythm.
Working purposes: Working horses are typically bred to pull ploughs, till paddocks, or harvest fields. Their hard work and endurance allow them to pull heavy loads for long distances without tiring. Many working equestrians enjoy spending time on their horses and enjoy the companionship and comfort that working breeds offer. Equestrian breeders keep working horses in all kinds of conditions, from natural to artificial, allowing them to adapt to most conditions.
Dressage: Dressage is a French term meaning ‘dancing with the dress’. Dressage involves competing in dressage style competitions, where horses are trained to follow pre-set routines on the flat, rail, or jump plain. Dressage as a sport became popular around the turn of the twentieth century, and Dressage competitors can enter competitions internationally, showing off their impressive abilities. Dressage riders can compete individually or enter shows where they perform together with their partner, often as a duo. For Dressage as a sport, the horses need to be well trained, competitively fit, and comfortable in high-quality leather and equipment.
Rodeo: Rodeo, the roping game, was started in the early nineteenth century when a horse rider tried to pull a horse by hand, without using a rope. The idea was to make the animal walk by bending its knees and feet, and the Spaniards soon developed a game that we know as ‘rodeo’. Over the years, many modifications have been made to the game, adding higher quality rope, padded seats, protective pads, roping equipment, etc. Today, when you watch a rodeo, you’ll see people riding on high quality tack, wearing very comfortable clothes, using special clothing designed for the sport, such as riding breeches, hats, jackets, gloves, boots, gloves, pants, skirts, and collars.
