Horse riding or equestrianism is an engaging activity that provides fun and fitness for people of all ages, skill levels and gender.
There are a wide variety of different sports connected with horse riding, involving individual or team efforts.
Olympic undertakings such as dressage, show-jumping and eventing are favourites to watch, and for the less competitive, family-friendly trail riding is very popular. In many parts of the world, horses are still used in practical ways such as farming and transport.
The basic skills for riding require a combination of physical strength and mental maturity. There are many different breeds of horses, and the age, weight, size, strength, ability and purpose of the rider will determine the appropriate mount.
The coin’s coloured reverse portrays a rider with her horse against a coloured background of show jumps and a sunrise. The inscription HORSE RIDING, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the monetary denomination are also incorporated in the design.
Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2013 year-date.
A great gift for any budding young collector, the coin is housed in a vivid presentation card which has fantastic illustrations and information about horse riding.
