Eventing is the most complete combined competition discipline recognized by the
FEI where men and women compete as equals in both individual and team events.
It demands of the competitor considerable experience in all branches of equitation
and a precise knowledge of the horse’s ability and of the horse a degree of
competence resulting from intelligent and rational training. It covers every
aspect of horsemanship: the harmony between horse and rider that characterize
Dressage; the contact with nature, stamina and extensive experience essential
for the Cross Country; the precision, agility and technique involved in Jumping.
Eventing is one of the three disciplines in competition at the Olympic Games,
the other two being Jumping and Dressage.
