2012 Olympic Equestrian Events

Just a year to go ... These are the only Olympic sport events where men and women compete against each other on equal terms and where humans and animals compete together.

Venue: Greenwich Park

Eventing
Dates: Saturday 28 July – Tuesday 31 July
Featuring: dressage, cross-country and a dramatic jumping finale - an all-round test of Equestrian skill.

Dressage
Dates: Thursday 2 August – Thursday 9 August
Dressage events test the horse and rider's discipline and elegance as well as athletic prowess.

Jumping
Dates: Saturday 4 – Wednesday 8 August
Jumping includes navigation of a short course with precision, speed and perfect technique. Obstacles on a course may include parallel rails, triple bars, water jumps and simulated stone walls. Jumping was the first Equestrian event to be included in an Olympic Games competition.

At the Olympic Games, horses must be at least age 8 to compete in Dressage and Eventing, and age 9 or more for the Jumping event.

Those of us who haven't got tickets will at least be able to enjoy TV coverage!
