Eventing, or horse trials, combines three tests in one competition: dressage, showjumping and cross-country. For many, it’s the ultimate challenge.
Producing a horse who stays calm, obedient and beautifully balanced in the dressage arena, goes bold and clear cross-country and can also jump a clean, accurate show jumping round isn’t easy.
At top level, the challenge of eventing is even harder. It’s no longer enough to have a horse who is a cross-country machine but produces an uninspired dressage test, or always has a pole or two down in the show jumping.
Today’s event horses and riders have to excel in all disciplines, which demands exceptional partnerships and exceptional preparation. Whether you’re cantering during fitness work, fine tuning flatwork or schooling over fences, you need to protect your horse’s legs without impeding his athleticism.
