Event Description

Equestrian is the only event in the Olympics and Asian Games in which humans form a team with animals, and also are the only events in which men and women can truly compete on an equal level. The jockey and horse both develop their skills, grace, boldness, agility and speed. The 7 equestrian events approved by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) are Eventing, Jumping, Dressage, Driving, Endurance, Vaulting and Reining.

Dressage

Dressage is the most graceful event of all equestrian sports. In this event, the horse makes a designated movement according to the orders of the jockey. This event proceeds through 3 rounds. For the first 2 rounds, the horse and jockey demonstrate certain movements, including passages, pirouettes and piaffes in walk/trot/canter forms. The final round is a freestyle (KUR) match demonstrating choreography according to individually prepared music.

Eventing

Eventing includes dressage, cross-country and Jumping, and the jockey must be well-rounded to be excellent in all three events. Eventing demands patience and serenity, whereas cross-country demands boldness and speed, and Jumping demands accuracy and timing. Jockeys must jump over several fixed obstacles in fixed courses in the crosscountry event.

Jumping

The Jumping event is greatly popular due to its spectator friendliness. The jockey must guide the horse while jumping over various obstacles installed in the course. These obstacles include vertical obstacles, pole obstacles, consecutive obstacles, water obstacles and artificial stone wall obstacles. In the Jumping event, the audience can enjoy the horse's jumping ability and the jockey's ability to accurately guide the horse through obstacles.
