Eventing, or Horse Trials, is the ultimate equestrian challenge, likened to an equine triathlon; it provides a comprehensive test of all-round ability for horse and rider and also tests the partnership between the two. Despite being sometimes called ‘three-day eventing’, the modern sport usually takes place over four days, as the dressage phase takes two days to complete. However, each horse and rider combination will only compete in three phases, on three days, with a rest day on one of the dressage days.
The four-day event is a great family day out for all. With an abundance of food stalls such as Fox Hat, Lemon Squeezy and Persie Gin, there is also plenty of shopping if you’re looking for some retail therapy.
