2007 Pan American Games- Equestrian

2007 Pan American Games- EquestrianThe equestrian events of eventing, jumping and dressage will be held July 14-29, 2007.

Introduction in the Pan American Games: 1951

The Equestrian disciplines are the only sports in the Pan-american Games in which athletes and animals compete as one. The importance of each of them is shared in such a way that the Equestrian discipline also is one of the few sports where men and women compete against each other. The history of this event blends with the history of civilization itself, when men started taming horses to use them as a means of transportation. But it was only in 1921 that the International Equestrian Federation was founded. By that time, the Equestrian discipline was largely practiced in its three categories.
Jumping is the most widely known category, and depending on the competition, the winner will be the rider who completes a preset course in the shortest period of time, knocks down the fewest number of obstacles or accumulates the highest score. The winner of Dressage tests, according to the judges' evaluation, will succeed in both mandatory movements and in a freestyle choreography. Finally, the Eventing competition lasts three days and encompasses Dressage, Cross-Country (consisting of four phases) and Jumping.
