2018 Winter Equestrian Festival - January 10 - April 1, 2018 - 23
Equitation competition is offered for junior and amateur
riders and is judged based on the style and form of
the rider. Horses are not judged in this discipline, but
successful riders will ensure that their horses are well
behaved. Riders can be judged over fences or on the flat.
Fédération Equestre Internationale is the international
governing body for all Olympic equestrian disciplines
based in Lausanne, Switzerland.
To get the most out of polo, it helps to understand the
basics of the game. The polo field is 300 yards long by
160 yards wide (the area of nine football fields). Two
teams, each with four players, compete. The game is
divided into six 7-minute, 30-second play periods called
"chukkers." The objective is to drive the ball downfield
and between the opponent's goalposts. The team that
scores the most goals wins.
