Horus was told by his mother, Isis, to protect the people of Egypt from Set, the god of the desert, who had killed his father Osiris (Set's own brother) in a fit of jealousy and sent Osiris into the underworld where he now rules. Set, at the time, was ruler of Egypt and all her people when it should've been Horus to rule.
Horus had many battles with Set, not only to avenge his father, but to claim the throne of Egypt for himself and claim all the lands both Upper and Lower Egypt. Horus was often associated with Lower Egypt and became it's patron whereas Set was more often associated with Upper Egypt.
According to Papyrus Chester-Beatty I, Set is depicted as trying to prove his dominance by seducing Horus and then having intercourse with him. However, Horus places his hand between his thighs and catches Set's semen, then subsequently throws it in the river, so that he may not be said to have been inseminated by Set. Horus then deliberately spreads his own semen on some lettuce, which was Set's favorite food.
After Set had eaten the lettuce, they went to the gods to try to settle the argument over the rule of Egypt. The gods first listened to Set's claim of dominance over Horus, and call his semen forth, but it answered from the river, invalidating his claim. Then, the gods listened to Horus' claim of having dominated Set, and call his semen forth, and it answered from inside Set.
Furious, Set still refused to give up his claim to his brother's son. Horus and Set challenged each other to a boat race, where they each raced in a boat made of stone. Both agreed on these terms, however, Horus deceived Set. He painted his boat which was wooden to look like stone.
When the race began Set, who's boat was actually made of stone, sank and as a result of this Horus speeded ahead of him and claimed victory. Set then officially gave the throne of Egypt to Horus, however, he still ruled the desert and it's oases.
