About The Twilight Eventing Series

  • After your warm up, proceed to your Dressage arena ready to start at your appointed time. Late arrivals will not be honored. Dressage is run and scored under the same rules as USEA events.
  • Put on your horse's SJ boots, warm up over a few jumps in the warm up area and proceed to the SJ arena. SJ is run and scored under the same rules as USEA events.
  • Change your horse's boots, put on your vest and proceed to the start of the cross-country course.
  • If approved to ride multiple horses, bring a groom to handle your horses between rides. The compressed format makes it difficult to be on time for multiple rides without assistance.
  • You may ride your entire event (including dressage) in your XC attire (bridle, saddle, vest, boots etc.)

The cross country course is made up 12 to 16 jumps with a length up to 1700m. Riders may choose which level to jump at each marked obstacle (Intro - Modified). As long as you jump clean on the first attempt, you will accrue no XC faults.  You may circle around and jump the same set of jumps at a higher level if desired and this will not result in a TE.  You may also jump any unflagged jump on the way to your next numbered obstacle.  These will not be judged but are part of the schooling event.  If another rider is coming while schooling a numbered jump, please move to the side to allow the other rider to continue.

*Each XC Jump effort has a choice of Intro (18"-2'), Starter (2'-2'3"), BN .79m (2'-7"), N  .90m (2'-11"),  T  1.0m (3'-3"), or P/T up to 1.1m (3'-7"). Choose any 1 of these at each jump number. A fall and you are eliminated. Riders may jump any obstacle out on course, including water, banks, ditches on their way to the next numbered jump.

  • The course maps will be available at http://www.mycoursewalk.com
  • The SJ & XC courses will be different for each event
  • This is a schooling experience. No ribbons.
