Show Jumping
Contest Directions: Show Jumping is an equestrian sport, that started in the 18th century in England. Before the 18th century there was little need for horses to jump fences across country, because there were not many fences and boundaries. It all changed with the introduction of The Inclosure Acts in the 1800s that required all landowners to properly fence their properties. So during fox hunting - a routinely popular hobby in the old England - horses needed to jump over many fences when chasing foxes. Avid hunters then started training their horses to jump over fences and called it Lepping or "horse leaping". Lepping was then formally added to a family of English riding equestrian events, and was formally named as "Show Jumping". In England it is still one of the most popular sports among the elite.
