What equestrian event combines the finesse and style of dressage, the endurance and courage of cross-country and the athleticism and speed of show jumping? Eventing brings together all of this in a matter of three mere days. This triathlon of equestrian competition was developed as a test for military and cavalry mounts and their riders to prepare for battle.
