Horseback riding started as a vital skill for the soldier or warrior and a mode of transportation for people in general.

People have been riding horses for over 5,000 years!

According to scientific discoveries, the inhabitants from the ancient Asian city of Susa were equestrians.

Horses were not found in ancient North America and Christopher Columbus is credited with bringing the first horses to the American continent from Europe, after 1492.
