An Introduction to Eventing

New to Eventing or want to know more about it and the various levels? Read our introduction to Eventing.

I thought I would explain for new Atherstone members the various standards of Pony Club Eventing. Many branches run two O.D.E’s in the season. They are usually divided into Junior/Minis and Novice, Intermediate and Open. 

In Eventing the Dressage Test must be ridden from memory (except at Level 1 when the test can be commanded). This is followed by a Show Jumping round with the XC phase last.

Members who are jumping consistently well in O.D.E’s up to Novice can aim to be included in the teams at the Area; this competition is a qualifier for the finals of the Nationals. Likewise, members jumping well at Level 4 (Intermediate) and Level 5 (Open) will hopefully be included in the Area teams which are qualifiers for the Pony Club Championships in late August (the highlight of the Pony Club year which features the finals of the Dressage, Show Jumping, Eventing, Polocrosse, Mounted Games and Dressage to Music, Horse and Pony Care and Tetrathlon .


Event training rallies takes place throughout the year and focuses on all three phases; dressage, show jumping and cross country.  If you are interested in competing in teams for Branch and/or the Area competition, it is essential that you attend some of our event training rallies so that we can help you train to compete at a level suitable for you.
