FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018: Eventing

Nov 8, 2017 - 11:23 PM

EVENTING, one of the three Olympic equestrian disciplines, is a formidable combination of Dressage, Cross-country, and Jumping, done over three days and with the same horse for each phase of competition.

Often known as the triathlon of the equestrian world, Eventing is a sport that tests both the horse and rider in all aspects of horsemanship and athleticism. Renowned designer Captain Mark Phillips (GBR) is the cross-country course designer for the FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2018.

Phillips is working directly with Driving course designer Richard Nicoll to combine efforts on the construction and layout of the Driving and Eventing cross-country and marathon tracks, both of which will take place on the former White Oak golf course property adjacent to the main TIEC grounds. Both disciplines, which will be hosted at different times throughout the Games, will share some of the same sites and tracks. This collaboration ensures consistency across the two courses, for both spectators and competitors.
