Eventing

Eventing could be termed an "equestrian triathlon."
It involves working with a horse both on the flat and over fences. The three phases are: dressage, endurance (or cross-country), and show jumping.

Dressage

Dressage is a French term meaning “training”
and its purpose is to develop the horse’s natural athletic ability and willingness to work making him calm, supple and attentive to his rider.

Hunter Jumper

A show jumper must have the scope and courage to jump large fences as well as the athletic ability to handle the sharp turns and bursts of speed necessary to navigate the most difficult courses.
