Spectators

Welcome Spectators!

Come experience the thrill of eventing and join us as spectators!

Eventing "the triathlon of equestrians sports" is the ultimate test of partnership between horse and rider

DRESSAGE is held Friday in the outdoor arena and grass fields. It tests the gaits, suppleness and obedience if the horse through a series of prescribed movements (the dressage test)

CROSS-COUNTRY on Saturday is the second phase and highlight of eventing. Horses and riders gallop over miles of challenging terrain, while negotiating remarkable natural obstacles, water hazards banks and ditches. 

SHOW JUMPING is the final phase held on Sunday. It brings the energy and precision of jumping back to the outdoor stadium. Riders and horses test their athletic ability, conditioning and training as they soar over obstacles. 

Admission is FREE to spectators, food is available for purchase on grounds. Come enjoy the great atmosphere and learn more about the sport of eventing!
