Activity Idea: Horse Eventing

Eventing (or sometimes referred to as Horse Trials) originally evolved from the training of cavalry horses.

 

The sport is rather like the pentathlon in that it combines different disciplines in one competition and is run on a cumulative penalty basis. The competitor with least penalties at the end is the winner.

Eventing comprises three disciplines – Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross-Country. The third phase is most suited to wooded areas. Cross-country consists of a course of natural obstacles to be jumped.
