Pony Club Eventing

It involves 3 disciplines, Dressage, Showjumping and Cross Country (XC) phases
- each of which is designed to test the horse's ability.

What is Eventing

The Dressage phase shows how trainable the horse is and its basic paces in walk, trot and canter. Show Jumping shows athleticism, control and accuracy while the Cross – Country phase tests stamina, speed, jumping and bravery.

The sport combines the different disciplines in one competition and is run on a cumulative penalty basis. The competitor with least penalties at the end is the winner.

There are various levels of competition at IPC eventing:

Open (where the maximum height of fences is (110cm) ; Intermediate (1m) ; Junior (90cm) and U 12 (80cm)

Qualifiers are run throughout the summer and the Championship takes place over two days in mid August. The dates of all the competitions appear on the Irish Pony Club website and entries must be made through your DC

Full details of qualification, age groups etc. are available in the rule book on the Competition rules downloads page.

Any query to final scores must be lodged within 30 minutes of the final results having been posted. There will be no change of results after the day of competition. The onus is on the competitor to ensure that his result has been accurately recorded on the official score sheet before he/she leaves the venue.
