Triathlon

Equestrian sports are very diverse, but only three of them belong to the classic types. Triathlon is the most difficult type of equestrian sport.

Three days in a row a rider on the same horse involved in dressage riding (showing wieziennej horse’s submission to man), in field trials (test of courage, strength, agility of both partners of 36 km of road obstacles) and finally, in overcoming obstacles “hard class” on the flat jumping field (no discount on fatigue within the first two days!).

If in show jumping the horse, not calculating the jump and hitting the obstacle with his feet, destroys it, then in field tests the obstacles are “dead” – both natural (ditches, ravines, rivers, hills, steep ascents and descents) and specially built (log pyramids, fences, stacks of boards or woodpiles).

They are up to 140 cm high and 2 Cm wide.

It is clear that to pass such a difficult route, the rider must have a cold head and a hot heart. Triathletes of our country have repeatedly become European Champions in the team competition in 1962, 1965, 1969, and 1975.

Hurdles, dressage, and triathlon events were first included in the Olympic games program in 1912. And the riders of our country began to participate in the Games only in 1952.
