London Olympics: Equestrian JumpingMore commonly known as "Show Jumping" in the UK, the London 2012 Equestrian Jumping competition takes place over five days from Saturday 4 to Wednesday 8 August at the beautiful World Heritage Site of Greenwich Park. There are a total of five rounds in the Jumping competition, two of which are used to determine the placings in the Team event, while all five contribute to the Individual event. As is the case in all three Equestrian disciplines, both men and women compete against each other on equal terms - making Equestrian unique amongst all other Olympic sports. With a total of 200 athletes competing for six gold medals in all three competitions, Equestrian is one of the most competitive sports during the Summer Games. Held in a purpose-built arena in front of the ornate colonnades of the Old Royal Naval Hospital, the Jumping competition is a real test of skill, speed, power and nerves, with competitors negotiating a short course containing 12 to 14 fences of varied difficulty.
