Isfahan hosted the 3rd Naqsh-e-Jahan Cup, a show jumping competition. For three days more than 200 riders from Isfahan, Tehran, Fars, Qom, Tabriz, Zanjan and Kerman competed in different classes and categories (children, teen, youth and adults).

Show Jumping, also known as “stadium jumping”, “open jumping”, or simply “jumping”, is a part of a group of English riding equestrian events that also includes dressage, eventing, hunters, and equitation. Jumping classes are commonly seen at horse shows throughout the world, including the Olympics. International competitions are governed by the rules of the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI).
