About The Twilight Eventing Series

  • Have ALL your gear required for the three phases and your horse.  You should be finished your entire event within 45 minutes of your dressage time.
  • 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 for 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 riding 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 14 to 18 jumps with a length up to 1700m with scoring being the same as USEA events.

*(Each XC Jump effort has a choice of Elementary (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.  If you are having trouble at a particular fence, and another rider is coming up, please move to the side to allow the other rider to continue. Riders may jump any obstacle including water, banks, ditches on their way to the next numbered jump.

  • You should have completed your whole event within 1 hour of the start time.
  • Dress for all phases the same as you would for Cross-Country.
  • The course maps will be available at http://www.mycoursewalk.com
  • The course will not be the same for each event
  • This is a schooling experience. No ribbons.
