Horse Racing - Racing takes place either "on the flat" or over obstacles. Flat racing is a test of speed, stamina and the skill of the jockey to choose the right tactics for their horse, the racetrack and the unfolding race.

Endurance - There are two main types of long-distance riding - endurance and competitive trail riding. Endurance rides can cover up to 160kms in one day and is akin to the marathon in running. The winning horse is the first one to cross the finish line. It requires the rider to exercise judgment in the correct speed for the terrain and the most economical pace for the horse to maintain over a sustained distance. Vet checks throughout the race determine whether the horse is fit and well enough to continue.

Equestrian Vaulting - Vaulting has been described as gymnastics on horseback. It was a popular sport in Roman times evolving into circus bareback riding, trick riding and more recently a highly competitive international sport. All vaulting tests are scored with an overall score out of 10 and judging is based on technique, form, difficulty, balance, security and consideration of the horse. The horse's way of going makes up 20% of the final score.
