Equestrian Jumping is a discipline of Equestrian. Equestrian refers to the art of riding, driving and vaulting the horses. Equestrian Jumping also known as "show jumping", "stadium jumping", "open jumping" or "jumpers" is one of the disciplines of equestrian. Show Jumping is the sport of equestrian in which a rider and a horse has to jump over a series of fences and obstacles in a given time limit.These obstacles can be fences of different heights and wide ditch of water. During the game the competitors has to face knockdown and time penalties as well. Equestrian Jumping is heavily influenced by an Italian riding instructor, Captain Federico Caprilli, who introduced a forward position with shorter stirrups.
The Jumping competition is a tense, exciting test of skill, speed and power. Held in an arena around a short course containing 12-14 fences, the event requires huge reserves of boldness, accuracy and nerves of steel – from both the riders and their horses. As with all three Equestrian disciplines on the Olympic programme, the competition features both Individual and Team events, and men and women compete against each other on equal terms. There are a total of five rounds in the Jumping competition. Two of these rounds are used to determine the placings in the Team event, with all five rounds playing a part in the Individual event. If two or more rider/horse combinations are tied for medal places after the fifth and final round of the Individual event, there will be a jump-off to break the tie.
