This weekend is wrought with horsepower.

For the first time in 13 years, New York City is hosting an equestrian event, with Trump Rink transformed into a stage of Olympic proportions for the inaugural Central Park Horse Show.

Competitions are currently in full swing now through Sunday. Weekend matinee events will include such challenges as a steeplechase, various mounted games (think polo matches) and dressage and vaulting demonstrations.

The show is organized by Chronicle of the Horse magazine. For the full schedule and ticket information, visit
