EVENTING, WHAT IS IT ?

O n e   c o m p e t i t i o n   t h r e e   d i s c i p l i n e s

Eventing (also known as three day eventing or horse trials) is an equestrian event where a single horse and rider combination compete against other combinations across the three disciplines of dressagecross-country, and show jumping (stadium).

 

Eventing was previously known as Combined Training, and the name persists in many smaller organizations. The term "Combined Training" is sometimes confused with the term "Combined Test" which refers to a combination of just two of the phases.

 

Originally created to test the capacities of army horses, the discipline evolved little by little to become a full equestrian discipline. The three-day event is one of the seven world equestrian disciplines approved by the International Federation of Equestrian Sports (FEI).
