Eventing (also known as three day eventing or horse trials) is an equestrian event where a single horse and rider combine and compete against other competitors across the three sports of dressage, cross-country, and show jumping.
We have a number of children who regularly train and compete at various levels and we are proud to say that Nicky Hill who had her first ride at Badminton this year is a former member who learnt to ride with us.
What is Arena Eventing?
Arena Eventing consists of one continuous course that starts with showjumps and is followed by a variety of working hunter and portable cross country jumps, along with fixed elements such as a ditch, water splash and steps. Overall, the perfect preparation for both Showjumping, Cross Country and Eventing competitions!
We hold numerous dressage, showjumping, cross country and arena eventing rallies throughout the whole year for all ages and abilities. See What's on tab for more information.
We book different locations such as Aston-Le-Walls, Lincomb and Somerford so that there is always new and exciting to do as well as use our branch field as much as we can. Just look at our What's On page to see our current range of activites. You can do as little or much as you like.
Lots of equestrian centres hold One Day Events, Arena Eventing and Cross Country competitions and we are lucky to be close by a number of quality centres.
The pinnacle of Pony Club is to be selected for Area. This is a competition where our club competes against all of Area 9 Pony Clubs (of which we form part). If successful you then get to compete at The Pony Club National Championships.
If you are interested in joining any of the Eventing teams Regional, Novice, Intermediate or Open please contact Jayne. We are always looking for new people to come forward and give it a try.
If you would like to compete at Area you will need to have done 3 Eventing based rallies and 2 clear rounds in Cross Country as a horse and rider combination at the appropriate height that you wish to compete. This is for safety reasons.
There are 5 sections at Area:- Introductory (70cms); Regional (80cms); Novice (90cms); Intermediate (1m); Open (1.10m)
