Research shows that humans have been riding horses for more than 6,000 years, yet the sport of equestrian made its official debut in the Olympics in the 1912 Stockholm games. Far beyond horseback riding, equestrian is broken down into three disciplines: dressage, jumping, and eventing, each of which is an Olympic event.

Germany’s Lead Shaky in Equestrian
After a strong opening to the equestrian portion of the Olympics with a pair of individual golds, Germany still sits atop the sport’s medal count with a total of four: three gold medals and a silver medal. Julia Krajewski picked up the most recent gold medal on Monday in Eventing Individual Jumping. When the competition was done on Tuesday, however, only one German advanced to the final. The other two were eliminated in the tie at 31st-place.
How to watch Jumping final Individual Events?
Watching the Olympics has been notably difficult, as The Games are being carried in the United States by NBC across their family of products including NBC, NBC Sports, Golf Channel, USA, and the Peacock Streaming Service. What’s even more unfortunate, is that these channels aren’t available everywhere to all fans looking for American coverage from Tokyo.
As the Olympics enter the final week, OLYMTV is offering day passes to catch the finals of the events you want to watch, without all of the runarounds. The day pass gives 24 hours of access for just $9.99, or you can get all seven days through the Closing Ceremony for just $29.99. OLYMTV doesn’t require a VPN to watch from anywhere in the world, and no contract or subscription is needed.
Olympics Eventing dressage Preview
Drawing from the other two equestrian disciplines, eventing is a three-part that requires skill at both jumping and dressage but also mastering a cross-country course that includes obstacles like fences, water, and hedges in a race against the clock.
Boasting a field of 65 horse and athlete combinations, eventing is an extremely competitive field that will result in just three winners of the individual and team events. At the 2016 Games in Rio, France took the team gold, followed by Germany and Australia. Michael Jung earned the individual top spot, with Astier Nicolas of France earning silver and Phillip Dutton finishing with bronze.

With a larger field than even eventing, jumping features 75 horse and rider combinations competing for gold. The goal is to race against the clock and cleanly clear 12-15 “knockable” obstacles, with time penalties taking place for skipped or failed obstacles. The obstacles on the course include water and walls, as well as “trebles”, or boxes.
The 2016 winners of the jumping event were, in order from gold to bronze, Nick Skelton, Peder Fredricson, and Eric Lamaze of Great Britain, Sweden, and Canada. In team jumping, France took the gold in Rio, with the United States winning the silver, while Germany took the bronze.
