小布朗朱格(Little Brown Jug)轻驾车赛马
地方性遗产

您曾看过赛马吗?那有看过轻驾车赛马吗?轻驾车赛马是由马拉着一辆轻型、称为sulky的两轮马车进行比赛。轻驾车赛马源自旧时光,当时的人会在县道或城市街道上,骑马或搭乘双轮型轻便马车互相竞速。

基本上,赛马活动主要分为两种:一种是轻驾车赛马,另一种则是由跨鞍赛马。而参加轻驾车赛马的马儿也分为两种:一种称为「溜蹄马」,步行时,位于身躯同侧的双腿会同时动作;另一种称为「快步马」,奔跑时,先以左前足和右后腿同时开跑,再以右前足和左后腿跟上。因为有两种参赛马,所以轻驾车赛马也分为两种类别:快步或溜蹄。

假如您想要参观溜蹄马竞赛,那么您一定要前往俄亥俄州的德拉威(Delaware),一暏当地的小布朗朱格(Little Brown Jug)轻驾车赛马,它于每年劳工节过后的第三个星期四举办小布朗朱格是一个专为三岁溜蹄马所举办的竞赛项目,1946年首次举办。当时的快步马较受大众欢迎,但两个住在市内的男士则较为喜欢溜蹄马,所以他们就成立了小布朗朱格协会,然后开始策划此一竞赛。


Have you ever seen a horse race? How about a harness race? A harness race is one in which a horse pulls a light, two-wheeled vehicle called a sulky. Harness racing developed from the old days when horses and buggies raced each other on country roads or city streets.

Basically, there are two major types of horse racing -- riding a horse with a saddle and harness racing. There are two types of horses that compete in harness racing: one is the pacing horse, which moves both legs on one side of its body at the same time, and the other is the trotting horse, whose left front and right rear leg move forward at the same time, then right front and left rear leg move together. Because there are two types of horses, there are two kinds of harness racing: trotting or pacing.

If you want to see a horse pacing race go to Delaware, Ohio, for the Little Brown Jug Harness Race, which takes place every year on the third Thursday after Labor Day. The Little Brown Jug is a race for three-year-old pacing horses. The first race was held in 1946. Back then, trotting horses were more popular, but two men in the city liked pacing horses, so they formed the Little Brown Jug Society and organized the race.
