The Quiz: The modern carousel emerged from which medieval tradition?
A Horse racing
As a training exercise, knights in Europe and the Middle East would gallop in a circle while tossing balls to one another. The game later evolved to include small rings that knights would spear off overhead poles. As the war game grew in popularity, commoners without horses wanted to participate, and carousels with wooden horses soon appeared at fairgrounds.
The correct answer to this quiz is Jousting.
