The object of dressage is the development of the horse into a happy athlete through harmonious education. As a result, it makes the horse calm, supple, loose and flexible, but also confident, attentive and keen, thus achieving perfect understanding with the rider.

Competitive dressage showcases all levels of training. Currently, there are nine progressive levels of competition, open to all breeds of horses and all levels of riders. Special classes such as musical freestyle offer creativity and individual expression for the exhibitors. The pinnacle of competitive dressage is the Grand Prix level. The Grand Prix level is also showcased at the Olympic Games as one of the three equestrian disciplines.


Eventing, also an Olympic discipline, is best described as an equestrian triathlon. The discipline originated as a cavalry test and is comprised of three phases: Dressage, Cross Country and Show Jumping.

The first phase, Dressage, shows the graceful partnership of horse and rider as described above.

The second phase, Cross Country, challenges bravery, fitness and determination as horse and rider combinations navigate a series of solid obstacles, technical questions and varied terrain.

In the third and final phase, Show Jumping, horse and rider combinations prove their precision as they clear a course of fences.

In a competitive environment, penalty points are accumulated in each phase. At the conclusion of an event, the horse and rider combination with the lowest score wins.
