How many different horse sports and competitions can you name? The list is long with both the English and the western disciplines. Whether you’re competing on horseback, leading the horse, or driving there are many different horse sports and competitions to participate in. Competing on horses has been around as long as people have been riding horses. Some early records show that chariot racing in ancient Egyptian times was the original form of horse sports and competition.
