National Equestrian Championship started successfully on the 3rd February 2016, organized by Telangana State Equestrian Association and hosted by Hyderabad Polo & Riding Club. The Nation’s Greatest, Most Seasoned Horse Riders gallantly showcased their talents with their magnificent horses in all forms and style, from jumping to riding, until the 7th February, 2016.

The championship began with preliminary jumping at the jumping arena on Day 1.  Preliminary jumping was all about endurance, the influence of the rider, and jumping capability of the horse.  The riders and horses performed exceptionally well.

Here are a few snapshots of Preliminary Jumping




Day 2 began with much enthusiasm and zest! The audience got bigger and louder. There were two events on the second day -Novice Jumping and Six Bar.
