The Event Derby competition consists of a Dressage Test followed by a Jumping Course set in the grass combining both stadium and cross-country fences. There are approximately 10-22 obstacles on varied terrain, and may include banks, ditches, and water. The Event Derby provides a cross-training opportunity for both horse and rider, regardless of their equestrian discipline, and provides a safe venue for new competitors, green horses, as well as a schooling opportunity for the experienced competitor. With levels from Intro to Intermediate, there are opportunities for everyone! Riders can compete in only the jumping phase if they wish and are also encouraged to enter multiple levels on their horses or add on extra jumping schooling rounds.
