Horse Racing                                    Jumping



On July 12, 2011 Belarus issued 3 stamps and a souvenir sheet dedicated to equestrian sport.

Equestrian sport began developing in Belarus after the creation of the first horse-riding school in Gomel in 1957. In 1958 its branch was opened in the village of Ratomka in Minsk region. Equestrian sport includes jumping (overcoming obstacles), dressage (training of a horse to a high level) and a three-day event (dressage, cross-country riding and show jumping). In 1997 a new equestrian sport — endurance riding and in 2008 — equestrian vaulting (gymnastics on horseback) appeared in Belarus. Horse racing is the equestrian competitions for the fastest riding on a racetrack.
