CYNISCA - FIRST FEMALE ANCIENT OLYMPIC CHAMPION
Today we celebrate the brilliant #PowerWoman Cynisca or Kyneska, a Greek princess of Sparta born in 440 BC and the first woman in history to win at the Ancient Olympic Games by way of her four-horse Chariot Racing team. Throughout history, horses powered our lives and imagination.
An incredible place to learn more about the history of all things equestrian is The National Sporting Library & Museum - @NationalSportingLM. It preserves, promotes, and shares the literature, art, and culture of equestrian sports (and beyond).
Artist of painting unknown.
