Spinal Research




Eventing - also knows as horse trials - originated with cavalry regiments.  The army requirement was for horses who were well mannered on the parade ground, could cross any sort of country quickly and safely, and survive to tell the tale!  Events are run either as 1, 2 or 3 day events.  In a three day event, dressage is always held on the first day, with the cross-country and endurance phase on the second day, and a show jumping round on the third - following a veterinary inspection.  In one and two day events, showjumping is sometimes held before the cross-country.

The sport requires fitness, skill and courage from both horse and rider.  The best horses have a high percentage of thoroughbred blood.
