    An equestrian triathon

    Eventing

    Three tests within one discipine

    An eventing competition is the ultimate test of collaboration between a rider and his horse. The origins of this disciplines go back to times when horses were still trained for their use in times of war. However, eventing is now a full worthy discipline within the equestrian sport.
    There are three different phases within the competition : dressage, cross country and jumping.

     

    Dressage

    Style and obedience

    The dressage phase comprises an exact sequence of movements executed by the rider and his horse.
    The jury will judge the combination on exactitude of the exercise, balance, rhythm and suppleness and most importantly, obedience of the horse and its harmony with the rider.

    Cross country

    Power and stamina

    The cross country, masterpiece of eventing, takes place in woods and fields and requires the horse and rider to jump about 20 natural obstacles (hedges, ditches, walls, water). This is a timed phase. Every disobedience will be sanctioned with penalties.

     

    Showjumping

    Precision and control

    For this test the combination rider/horse must jump 12 obstacles set up in a ring.
    This phase is also timed, with penalties being given for every obstacle knocked down, obedience or every second over the required time.
