History of Horse Racing

Previous Next

Making a connection with the mythological facts regarding horses, it is believed that the game was played between Odin the god and giant Hrungnir. Archeological facts suggest that by 648 BC, Greeks had introduced horse racing in their Olympic games. From this fact, one can easily guess the history and the popularity of this game. Not only Greece but also Syria, Babylon and Egypt had admired this game since that era. They used to compete horse racing by attaching chariots to them.

There were grievous injuries and death in some cases, which were the major risks that the rider and their horse were facing in chariot racing. Then, Romans who along with chariot races, popularized mounted horse racing. As the popularity rose the demand of more skilful horses came into the picture, which in turn brought hybrid horses into the market.
