Singapore 2010

The vision of the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) is to inspire young people around the world to participate in sport and adopt and live by the Olympic values. It was during its Session in Guatemala City in July 2007 that the IOC decided to create a new sporting event to educate, engage and influence young athletes inspiring them to play an active role in their communities.

At the Singapore Summer Youth Olympic Games, Jumping was the sole equestrian discipline represented with both Team and Individual events – the horses were provided by the organising committee. For the Team event, six teams represented each continent – Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America and South America.
