Hippology is a contest of equine knowledge. Participants take a written test; identify equipment, feeds and parts of the horse; judge horse classes; and solve a team problem. Participants work individually in the senior division, with the top three scores making the team score. Participants in the junior division work as a team throughout the contest.
