Horses do all kinds of sports from eventing to show jumping to dressage and so much more.
Check out these photos to see the beauty of horses in action no matter what discipline they are doing. It could be the elegance of dressage, the endurance of the eventer or the agility of the show jumper. No matter what the sport it’s thrilling to watch them negotiate a course or navigate their way around an arena.
Those Olympic sports mentioned above are only a portion of all that horses do around the world. In addition to the above the polo horses show speed while riders are negotiating that ball on the ground. The race horse is all about speed. The western horses come in all shapes and sizes and nothing is more thrilling then watching a horse slide into a stop and then spin and gallop off.
There is no doubt that watching horses in action is nothing less than thrilling.
