Eventing

Eventing is a three-phase competition that's often likened to a triathlon. The three phases of dressage, cross-country and showjumping are designed to test a horse and rider's harmony, stamina and athleticism, with the aim being to have the lowest cumulative penalty score at the end of the competition.   

If an event is held over a one or two days, known as a 'one-day event' regardless of the number of days, the order of the phases are dressage, showjumping and cross-country. For bigger events held over three or four days, known as 'three-day events', the order is changed to dressage, cross-country and showjumping. 

At senior level, eventing is contested at European, World and Olympic level. 

The World Class Programme is designed to provide a targeted approach to British athletes demonstrating high potential in the equestrian Olympic and Paralympic sports, including eventing, by offering the right support and environment to enable them to realise their medal winning potential. There are four levels to the World Class programme...
