Abstract

The use of performance analysis is commonplace throughout competitive sports, however, uptake is limited within equestrianism. This review considers the potential for wider implementation of performance analysis techniques within equine sports via contextualisation to showjumping: the horse, rider and the horse and rider dyad. There appears to be limited research available to underpin evaluation of the multiple facets that comprise competitive success in showjumping, with biomechanical evaluation of the jumping phases most established. This presents opportunities for collaboration between the equine industry, researchers and performance analysts to expand knowledge of what contributes to success for horse and rider partnerships in all equine disciplines.
