What is Eventing?
|Eventing or Combined Training is the ultimate equestrian sport. It trains and tests the horse and rider to the peak of their talent and ability in three phases: Dressage, Cross-Country and Stadium. The horse and rider must be proficient in all three aspects of the sport in order to succeed. The Horse Trials is one of the competitions which tests the expertise of horse and rider.|
THE HORSE TRIALS
The Horse Trials comprises three distinct tests, usually taking place on one or even two days, during which a competitor rides that same horse throughout in a dressage test, a cross-country test and a jumping test.
The trial is scored on a penalty basis. The final classification is reached by adding together all the penalty points incurred in the different tests. The winner is the competitor with the lowest total of penalty points.
