Have you ever considered horse eventing?
For most folks, that’s like saying, “Have you ever considered running a marathon?” when the most they’ve ever done is walk a 5-K, but as athletically demanding as horse eventing is, 3-day eventing has become a sport that attracts all levels of riders.
So if you’re interested in dressage, show jumping and cross country, or your horse seems like he has a talent for jumping and endurance and you’re a confident rider, you may want to look into horse eventing.
In this guide, called Eventing: A Guide to the Three-Day Eventing Elements of Dressage, Cross-Country and Show Jumping, the editors of Practical Horseman and the United States Eventing Association (USEA) break down the three elements of eventing and explain what is required in each one.
