What is Eventing?

Pony Club Eventing is a thrilling equestrian sport that encompasses three disciplines: dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. It provides young riders with an opportunity to showcase their skills and compete in a supportive environment. The dressage phase requires precision and harmony between horse and rider as they perform a series of predetermined movements. Cross-country tests bravery and agility as horse and rider navigate a course of natural obstacles over varied terrain. Show jumping demands accuracy and speed as horse and rider aim to clear coloured fences within the designated time frame.

Pony Club eventing fosters camaraderie among participants and emphasises sportsmanship, horsemanship, and safety throughout the competition. It’s an exciting and challenging experience that encourages riders to continually improve their abilities and bond with their equine partners.

Eventing is an Olympic sport in which Great Britain has a long history of success. The entire Great Britain Eventing team at London 2012 and Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 were ex-Pony Club Members!
