Ancient Horse Riding - Why?

For our Winter Learning Journey / Holiday Programme, the website says "Imagine that you were alive 2792 years ago and invited to compete in the first ever ancient Olympic Games. Which of these events: running, wrestling, boxing, pankration, horse racing and pentathlon would you compete in?"

I chose horse racing, because it looks a lot more safer than the other types of sports, and I think having Horses involved with your job is awesome and I've never rode a Horse before, so it would be a good experience, and could be a good life lesson for me.

Hi Shannon,

My name's Willy, and I'm one of the commenters for the Winter Learning Journey. Until now I haven't come across someone that chose horse racing as their chosen sport. That's still good, though. I'd agree that horse racing is a bit safer than the other sports, especially pankration!

Hi Shannon,

Welcome to the Winter Learning Journey! We (Willy and I) are so glad that see that you have joined us this holiday and posted a number of great activity blogs for the programme. That's awesome!

I am really glad to see that you have chosen one of the less common sports for this activity. I think that your decision to select it because you have never ridden a horse before and think that it would be a good life lesson is really admirable. What a great attitude!

Keep up the great work and the positive, 'can do' attitude!

Cheers, Rachel
