Equestrianism is considered to be a noble sport, one that requires sharp focus and total control over one's steed. In the Tournament of Ages, riders from all over the world will complete the racing circuit at breakneck speed in hopes of being the first to cross the finish line. If you're feeling fast and furious, dust off your spurs and sign up for the Racing Competition.

The Racing Competition will be a single-elimination tournament where two contestants will race each other on the circuit above. The racer on the left will follow the circuit left, and the racer on the right will follow the circuit right. The two racers will be expected to cross each at the eastern tunnel. For this competition, racers must use only the approved jousting mounts. Referees will follow the racers along the circuit to make sure they do not cheat by using shortcuts.
