    1. We can't tell from the question. If the position of a particular horse in the team is important, then it is a permutation. If you just care about groups of 4 horses, then you have a combination. I think the placement of a horse should be important

    2. combination

    3. combination, unless members of the group have specific tasks in the demonstration.

    1. Permutation: 9x8x7x6 = P(9,4) = 3024
    combination : C(9,4) = 126
    2. 9!
    3. C(24,4) = 10626
