Horse Trials

Eventing (or Horse Trials) originally evolved from the training and selection of cavalry horses.

Each of the three disciplines is designed to test the horses ability.
Dressage shows how trainable the horse is and its basic paces in walk, trot and canter.
The Show Jumping shows athleticism, control and accuracy.
The Cross Country tests stamina, speed, jumping and bravery. The sport is rather like the pentathlon in that it combines different disciplines in one competition and is run on a cumulative penalty basis. The competitor with least penalties at the end is the winner.
For more information have a look at the following websites:-

Hi Everyone,

Please find attached the information leaflet and registration form for the 2018 PC Area 9/ BE League – I only need the registration form returned.

Apologies for the delay in getting this form out – I am not quite sure where the time has gone!!

We hope that many of you will again join the League and encourage anyone who didn’t last year and is eligible, to join this year.

Many thanks

Jane Ogle

The form and information leaflet will also be available on the Area 9 website.







If you would like to go to Area Horse Trials this year you must do at least two horse trials before the Area date, I will try and keep you informed of pony club horse trials, there are plenty in the area.  Riding Diary is also a good way of finding out about events that are going on.  If you need any help or advice please don’t hesitate to contact me.  For a number of years now the branch has paid the entry fee for area events, last year the entry fee for horse trials was nearly a £1000, I’m afraid the branch can’t afford this kind of entry fee.  When we find out what the entry fee is this year we will be asking you for help towards it.  Good luck with your season ahead and please keep me informed of how you are doing.
