Introducing The Equestrian Medals & Plates For The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games


Introducing The Equestrian Medals & Plates For The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games

While the city of Beijing is most definitely preparing itself for the 2008 Olympic Games that start in August, most people may not realize that Beijing is not the only city where Olympic events will be taking place. In fact, the Equestrian competition and events of the 29th Olympic Games will be held in the city of Hong Kong, over 1,200 miles away from Beijing!

For people who are unfamiliar with the sport of Equestrian, it consists of three horse-riding disciplines:

  1. Jumping
    Modern jumping events developed from hunting enthusiasts in Britain and America seeking ways to test the talents of their horses.  Jumping competitions for horses were first organized in the 19th century in Ireland

  2. Dressage
    Dressage originally developed as a method of training horses for war, teaching them precise movements. Possibly originally developed by the ancient Greeks, modern dressage began during the Renaissance with the founding of a riding academy in Naples in 1532.

  3. Eventing.
    Eventing is a three-day, cross country competition that originated out of the necessity to test a cavalry horse for war. Military horses were required to travel long distances, negotiating many obstacles, and then perform strict parade maneuvers. Competitions for these skills began in Europe in 1902.

Equestrian events were included in the Olympic Games for the first time in 1900 and then in 1912, in a format very similar to that which will be used at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. 

To mark this unique portion of the Beijing 2008 Olympics taking place in Hong Kong, Panda America is proud to offer our customers a series of unique Equestrian Medals and Plates in a variety of sizes and metal types.

Each Medal and Plate features the official Olympic pictogram of the Equestrian sport, with a common reverse depicting the emblem of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Each comes in a unique and elaborate box with a certificate of authenticity. With EXTREMELY low mintages and the fact these events aren't taking place in Beijing like most of the other events in the Olympics, these medals and plates will surely become collectors items!  Call Panda America TODAY at 1-800-472-6327 or visit our website at www.PandaAmerica.com
