Competition dates: June, 27th and 29th
Horse-riding refers to a group of equestrian sports, in which both horse and rider are the important figures. It includes different disciplines, which vary according to the source. Jumping will be the discipline contested in Tarragona 2018.
The intent in jumping is to jump cleanly over a set course within an allotted time, without faults incurred for knockdowns. Events are celebrated according to different scales: power, hunters, with stopwatch, etc., and are classified in different groups depending on the heights, which oscillate between 1,1m and 1,6m. Horse-riding has been contested in the Mediterranean Games since its edition of 1955, held in Barcelona.
