Equestrian sports have been on the Bolivarian Games schedule for 14 of the 17 competitions that were created to honor Simón Bolívar, who successfully led efforts to wrest control of much of South America from Spain in the early 19th century.
About $140 million was spent by organizers–mostly governments–to stage the 17th edition of the Bolivarians at this ancient Pacific coastal city 350 miles (560km) north of Lima.
The Games were first staged in 1938 and are held once every four years. The continental National Olympic Committees of Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Chile, Peru, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Bolivia, El Salvador and Panama participate in the Games that this year have grown to 50 sports.
