The sport of eventing was developed by the military to test the readiness and ability of a horse and rider for battle. Consisting of three phases, it is also known as Combined Training or Three Day Eventing. The sport has changed through the years, but the basic phases of Dressage, Cross Country (endurance), and Stadium Jumping remain.
The United States Eventing Association governs the sport of eventing in the United States. Alabama resides in Region 3 of the USEA. It is possible to find reduced "Combined Tests" in Alabama that consist of a Dressage test and Stadium Jumping course. Event riders are known for their excellent horsemanship skills, deep bond with their horse, and courage in the saddle. Events are fun both for competitors and spectators.
