Eventing Competitions


Eventing is an equestrian event where a single horse and rider combination compete against others in the three disciplines of dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. This event is rooted in a comprehensive cavalry test: the mastery of several types of riding. The competition is either a one-day event (ODE), where all three events are completed in one day: dressage, followed by show jumping then the cross country phase; or a three-day event (3DE), which is more commonly now run over four days, with dressage on the first two days followed by cross country the next day and then show jumping in reverse order on the final day.
