There are a plethora of unique sports in the Rio Olympics, not quite as popular as, say, gymnastics or swimming. By going to NBC’s sister cable channels during the daytime, I have seen some of the less-covered sports such as shooting, table tennis and equestrian.

Equestrian was first featured in the 1900 Paris Olympics. It is the only sport where men and women compete with each other in the same event. Competitors are judged by the symbiosis with their horse, in dressage and/or jumping.

I drew a rider striding – a time when a horse is at its happiest, active in the wide open, using grandiose equus physical ability by leaping with precision through challenging obstacles.

Which sport do you like to see?
