A Blog About Show Jumping
Hi, my name is Cheska and welcome to my blog about show jumping! I am an amateur show jumper and I have always been a big fan of horses since I was small. I grew up in a small town and my father introduced me to the wonderful world of show jumping.
I own 2 horses – Midnight and Hope. They have been with me for years – with Midnight being my first horse. I have used them in competitions in the past but I have to say that Midnight is my favourite so far.
About show jumping
For those of you wondering what show jumping is all about – well let me enlighten you. This is a type of equestrian event that is also known by other names like open jumping, stadium jumping, or jumping. This is a sport that is also included in the Olympics.
In some competitions, this event is purely about jumping while others will include various events and disciplines. There is usually a sanctioning organisation that is responsible for every competition. In the UK, this is the British Showjumping Association. International competitions are sanctioned by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports.
