Horse Trials are also known as eventing, which is the triathlon of horse sports and is the most exacting, exciting and fulfilling of all the equestrian sports. It is one of the fastest growing equestrian pursuits in the world – and one in which riders of all ages and abilities can compete.

The ultimate challenge for horse and rider, eventing tests their partnership and athletic prowess in three diverse and demanding disciplines:

  • The grace and harmony of dressage.
  • The rigors and thrills of cross-country.
  • The power and pageantry of show jumping.
