    Apologies for being inactive, needed some sleep . I was going to say so but didn't want to assume I'd won!
    The only 3 equestrian sports in the Olympics I can think of would be dressage, jumping and eventing.
    It looks a bit like polo, but that isn't modern so...
    Also looks like a ball in someone's hand but I can't think what that would be. Any other hints?

    Sent via iPF from my iPad2 iOS 5.1.

    Edit: mis read the info so ignore what I wrote above.
    I'm guessing it's handball on horses? I'm sure it had a much more graceful name than that though?

    How many players/horses in each team?

    It's a newish one, not yet well known but fast becoming popular. And very fast & athletic too. Clues lie in the photo--ready to be picked up...
    It's called Horseball.each team has 4 players/horses,plus replacements if necessary. It originated in Argentina in the early 1700's.
    Here's the Wikipedia article.

    Yes, spot on. We watched a demo by this team who visited stables locally. Unbelievably fast & active. They need to be able to pick up the ball from the ground at the gallop.

    It's a hibiscus. If I'm right I leave the challenge open to the first comer.

    Can't monitor as otherwise engaged

    It's not a Hibiscus,but is a related plant. It's a biennial,flowering in the second year.

    The flowers are similar but the flower in my challenge does not grow on a bush but on a biennial plant whose above ground portion dies off in the fall to regrow and flower in the second year. The plant is a member of the mallow family.
