Equestrian Overview

Equestrian became an Olympic sport at the Paris 1900 Games. It then disappeared until Stockholm 1912 but has been included in the programme ever since. Individual and team medals are awarded in each of the three Equestrian disciplines.

Success demands complete harmony and trust between human and animal, with the rider communicating through their hands on the reins, legs and shifts in body weight to encourage the horse to respond. Indeed, the qualities of the horse are tested to the same extent as those of the athlete.

International Federation: Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI)
