Discontinued Equestrian Events
Equestrian Events have long been a part of the Olympic Games. Chariot Racing was part of the Ancient Olympics. In the modern Olympics, originally only commissioned officers were allowed to compete. From 1952 the rules were changed to allow civilians and women.
The following events once were part of the Equestrian program but are no more.
- At the 1900 Summer Olympics, five equestrian events were contested. Only three are currently considered Olympic by the International Olympic Committee, the High Jump, Long Jump, and the Jumping Competition (similar to the modern event). The other two events held were the Hacks and hunter combined (Chevaux de Selle) and the Mail coach, Four-in-Hand.
