A riding horse or a saddle horse is a horse used by mounted horse riders for recreation or transportation. It is unclear exactly when horses were first ridden because early domestication did not create noticeable physical changes in the horse. However, there is strong circumstantial evidence that horse were ridden by people of the Botai culture during the Copper Age, circa 3600-3100 BCE. The earliest evidence suggesting horses were ridden dates to about 3500 BCE, where evidence from horse skulls found at site in Kazakhstan indicated that they had worn some type of bit. Wear facets of 3 mm or more were found on seven horse premolars in two sites, Botai and Kozhai 1, dated about 3500–3000 BCE. It is theorized that people herding animals first rode horses for this purpose, presumably bareback

  • Un cheval de selle est un cheval propre à être monté par un cavalier. Il s'agit d'une classification désignant un type de cheval destiné à la selle, c'est-à-dire à être monté plutôt qu'attelé. Si généralement l'appellation désigne des chevaux à sang chaud ou qui en sont issus, certains chevaux à sang froid sont également considérés comme des chevaux de selle. Les qualités nécessaires à un bon cheval de selle ont évolué au cours du temps en fonction de son utilisation. Le cheval de selle passe ainsi d'une utilisation militaire à une utilisation sportive et de loisir dans les pays occidentaux, alors qu'il reste un élément de mobilité dans d'autres pays. En France, une appellation spécifique « Cheval de Selle » a existé entre 2001 et 2009 désignant des chevaux aux ascendances connues mais ne faisant pas partie d'un stud-book, avec une orientation plutôt loisir.

  • A riding horse or a saddle horse is a horse used by mounted horse riders for recreation or transportation. It is unclear exactly when horses were first ridden because early domestication did not create noticeable physical changes in the horse. However, there is strong circumstantial evidence that horse were ridden by people of the Botai culture during the Copper Age, circa 3600-3100 BCE. The earliest evidence suggesting horses were ridden dates to about 3500 BCE, where evidence from horse skulls found at site in Kazakhstan indicated that they had worn some type of bit. Wear facets of 3 mm or more were found on seven horse premolars in two sites, Botai and Kozhai 1, dated about 3500–3000 BCE. It is theorized that people herding animals first rode horses for this purpose, presumably bareback, and probably used soft materials such as rope or possibly bone to create rudimentary bridles and hackamores. However, the earliest definitive evidence of horses being ridden dates to art and textual evidence dating to about 2000-1500 BCE. Many different horse breeds and types are suitable for riding, and body type varies widely depending on the equestrianism work they are asked to perform and the equitation style of the rider. There are several different styles in horseback riding that require different breeds. Styles include English and Western, which each have different skills and disciplines within them. English includes jumping, dressage, equitation, and hunter while Western includes barrel racing, pole bending, roping, and reining. Each discipline also requires different equipment and attire. Along with that, there are some breeds that are better for each discipline. For English hunter and jumper riding, it's best to have a Belgian Warmblood, Dutch Warmblood, Hanoverian, Holsteiner, or an Oldenburger. These two styles of riding are very similar for the demands of the horse, the biggest difference between the two styles is the rules involved, therefore the same breeds can be suitable for either. For English dressage, it's best to have an Andalusian, Hanoverian, Oldenburg, Danish Warmblood, or a Lusitano. For English equitation, a Morgan horse is best, however, many other breeds can be suitable. The most important qualities in an equitation horse are a happiness to do the job, a steady mindset, and good movement. Many horses can fit these qualities, thus there is not just one specific set of breeds that are best for equitation. For Western barrel racing, pole bending, and reining, it's best to have a Thoroughbred, Paint Horse, Quarter Horse, Appaloosa, or a Grade Horse. These horses are smaller, fast, and agile, making them the best horse for the job. These events are usually found in rodeos, where the same breed of horse can complete different tasks. For Western pole bending, it's best to have a horse that can also complete cattle work. These are warmbloods, Quarter horses, appaloosas, palominos, fox trotters and paints. (en)

  • Um cavalo de sela, também chamado cavalo de monta ou cavalo andador (em inglês, riding horse; em francês, cheval de selle) é um cavalo adequado para ser montado por um cavaleiro. A expressão alude a um tipo de cavalo destinado primordialmente a ser usado utilizando um arreio, e que consequentemente se distingue de cavalos de tração, cavalos de esporte e cavalos de trabalho. Conquanto geralmente com esta denominação é usada para referir-se aos cavalos de sangue quente, alguns dos chamados cavalos de sangue frio são igualmente considerados ideais para a monta. As qualidades típicas de um bom cavalo andador têm evoluído ao longo do tempo, principalmente em função de sua utilização. Originalmente usados principalmente em um contexto militar, mais recentemente têm sido usados principalmente em atividades de esporte ao ar livre e lazer. (pt)
