Dressage evaluates a horse’s training and the rider’s ability to perform a set of precise and controlled movements in a specific sequence. Dressage tests a horse’s obedience, flexibility, and balance, and requires a high degree of skill and athleticism from both horse and rider.



Showjumping involves jumping over a series of fences set in a specific pattern and height within a time limit. Showjumping tests a horse’s agility, athleticism, and the rider’s ability to navigate the course effectively and efficiently.


Combined Training combines dressage and showjumping into a single competition. Combined Training tests a horse and rider’s ability to excel in both disciplines, and requires a high degree of skill and athleticism from both horse and rider.


Eventing combines three phases: dressage, cross-country, and showjumping. Eventing tests a horse and rider’s ability to excel in different disciplines, from precision and obedience in dressage to speed and endurance in cross-country and accuracy and technique in showjumping.


Showing evaluates a horse’s conformation, movement, and manners, as well as the rider’s ability to present the horse to the judges. Showing competitions can include a variety of classes, such as in-hand classes, ridden classes, and working hunter classes.
