Friday Feature: Eventing Competitor

This week’s letter is E. If you missed last week’s Friday Feature, take a look at Dressage Competitor.

Much like last Friday’s feature, an event rider is someone who needs to be very capable on a horse.  Eventing can be carried out over one day or even as a three day event.

It entails completing a dressage test, show jumping course and eventing course on the same horse over this time.

Like with dressage, for someone who is looking to compete in eventing for a living, there are a few options:

  • train and ride your own horses
  • be paid to ride for other people
  • be taken on as a working pupil and gain experience whilst riding anothers’ horses

A willingness to ride any horse at the start (as a catch rider) may be what is required to gain the attention of others – as being someone who can ride anything, or as being someone who produces results with horses in the show ring.  Results and sponsorship will be the main forms of income for dressage riding.

For some posts that relate to this topic on Equus-Blog, take a look at:

“There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it’s the risk, the gamble. In any event it’s a thing I need.” – William Faulkner
