Horse trials, also known as ‘three day eventing’, is the ultimate test of horse and rider across three disciplines – the grace and discipline of dressage, the power and speed of cross- country and the strength and precision of show jumping.
The sport hosts three of the largest spectator events in the UK sporting calendar with Badminton, Blenheim Palace and Burghley Horse Trials.
