Eventing is best described as an equestrian triathlon. Comprised of three phases, the sport tests a rider’s skill more completely than any other.

Dressage, the first phase, shows the horse’s and rider’s ability to perform a series of prescribed classical movements on the flat in an enclosed arena. The second phase, cross-country, involves the horse and rider galloping over natural terrain, jumping a variety of fixed obstacles along the way. In the final phase of show jumping, horse and rider jump a series of stadium fences in an enclosed arena.

The rider accumulates penalty points in each phase based on varying factors and the rider with the lowest amount of points at the end of the three phases takes home top honors. The sport evolved from a military contest to an Olympic competition. It is an exciting sport attracting interest from all levels of sports enthusiasts, from weekend hobby riders to professional international stars.

Here in Las Cruces, New Mexico we host a United States Eventing Association (USEA) event as a member of Area X. This area is composed of Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada but riders from all over are welcome to attend!
