Lifelong Learning – Your Responsibility
Each day, new ...
Eventing is a sporting discipline which combines three phases of competition - dressage, cross country, and show jumping.
Each horse/rider combination performs a dressage test, demonstrating to the judges' the horse's paces, obedience, harmony with his rider, and degree of training. In the second phase, the horse and rider complete a course of solid-looking obstacles met on a course through fields, woods, and water, aiming to jump each obstacle without mishap within the time allowed. The final phase, show jumping, follows the same format as regular show jumping, proving that the horse is still fit and careful enough to negotiate a course of ore fragile obstacles without penalty. The scores from all three phases combine - the horse and rider with the fewest penalty points are the victors.
The Olympic and international format of Eventing spaces the phases out over three days. Shortened formats for lower level competitors, called Horse Trials or Derbies, can occur in one or two days.

The equestrian sport of jumping falls into two categories: show jumping and hunter.
Show jumping is one of the three Olympic equestrian disciplines. Horses are guided over a course of colourful obstacles that fall down if struck. The horse/rider combination are penalized for obstacles that have been knocked down or refused, for a foot in the water of a water obstacle, or for taking more than the time allowed to complete the course. Placings are determined by numerical score only.
In the hunter ring, the horse and rider complete a course of more natural-looking obstacles and are judge on the horse's paces and style over fences. The judges are looking for a safe, sound horse who would carry his rider in safety and elegance over obstacles while riding to hounds in the traditional sport of fox hunting.
The Equestrian Canada (EC) Board held an emergency meeting on Jan. 31, 2017 to discuss concerns expressed by EC volunteers and some members of the equestrian community, and to determine the next steps in addressing these concerns. The Board also confirmed their total confidence in the current leadership of EC, specifically of its President, CEO and Director of Finance. Our reasons for this vote of confidence are outlined below.
