In rural riding, the sets (horse and rider) have to go through a lane full of obstacles, outdoors, in the middle of the field. The goal is to exceed all of them as soon as possible, without dropping beacons or fail to skip them.
This sport is gaining more and more people in Brazil. It is divided into categories according to age and experience of the athletes.
Good breeds of horses for this sport are Arabic and Anglo-Arab, because they are agile animals, docile and excellent temperament.
