Eventing at GMHA

Eventing is one of the fastest growing equestrian pursuits in the world, and one in which riders of all ages and abilities can compete. Developed from cavalry competitions during the early 1900s, Eventing is the ultimate challenge for horse and rider, testing their partnership and athletic prowess in three diverse and demanding disciplines:

• The grace of dressage
• The rigors and thrills of cross-country jumping
• The power and pageantry of show jumping

A Horse Trial takes place over one, two or three days, and involves three distinct phases or tests, with varying degrees of difficulty, depending on the competitive level. Taken as a whole, these phases portray the ability, versatility and preparedness of the horse and rider.
