Is to do with riding horses
In the 1900s Paris included Equestrian in their Olympics. They let the horses jump.
In this sport you are riding horses. Doing jumps that are different heights in rows and a higher for different horses.
This sport is only played with one person and one horse.
You dont get timed its how well you jump it.
When you get scored they score you on how long and smooth it looks.
A small arena would be 20X40 large would be 20X60 but a standered compaction arena would be 100X200.
I think the best tactics to use in this would be to practice a lot so your horse will not be afraid. Or not able to do it.
There are jumping faults if the horse knocks to many down the horse may be disqualified. There are more that just that.
For your equipment you need a helmet boots vests. And the horse needs a saddle and headgear to keep you and the horse safe.
For the leagues they go all the way up top the Olympics. And down.
It took to the 1900s to make it to the Olympics. And now they have safer equipment because we are always making things safer so know one gets hurt.
