But we often pronounce this as Horse riding. In the past when there was no proper transport system in the world, people used horses as their mode of travel. So many people knew how to handle a horse and also to ride it. That is where all the horse sports such as polo, were created. Since they regarded this as a high class sport, there was even a dress code which was required for horse riding. The rider had to dress up in long slack pants, a long sleeve shirt with a coat and also this special helmet which was meant for riding. When the rider dresses up in this costume they look really professional.
