Exclusively procduced for Dillards

This beautifully turned-out gray horse is one of the elite performers of the horse show world. His mane and tail are painstakingly braided in the traditional formal style of British fox hunters. He wears the championship ribbon awarded to the top horse in today’s competition. He is the picture of regal equine grace and power. Pictured on one side is a colorful fox-hunting scene, with horses and riders following hounds over fences. On the other side are representatives of three modern international horse competitions--dressage, show-jumping, and eventing.

Today’s top equestrian events have a long history behind them. Horses were used for hunting ever since people first learned to ride them, but there wasn’t much need for an ability to jump until about 300 years ago, when the Inclosure Acts in England caused open land to be fenced. Much of the forest and large game was gone by then, but horses were still used to hunt foxes. With fences and stone walls enclosing fields, the horses had to be able to jump. Horse breeders began producing horses that were sought for their jumping talent, and that led to jumping competitions.
