Let's step back from the craziness of the competitions for a second and take a break...

If you’re lucky enough to be at Rio, get yourself along to our new fan experience, the  "Equestrian Playground"  in Deodoro Olympic Fan Park. The main attraction is a life sized mechanical horse called “Biscuit”.

Not your average bronco, this is a state-of-the-art simulator used by the pros to hone their skills on.  With sensors linked to video screens, you can get the real experience without having to muck out the stables afterwards. 

FEI President Ingmar de Vos even had a go, as well as Secretary General Sabrina Ibáñez and a slew of other interesting, cute, happy, beautiful, cuddly and slightly odd folks.

No, I don't know why some of them were standing on their heads.

This is a place for you guys - the fans of our sports - to come and meet us and have some fun.  And you might get some free badges too.
