Eventing – What is an Eventer

Eventers is what we classify as a special breed of rider. Eventers are a special unit, a family bonded together by sport that dates back through the ages. Eventing was originally a trial for the top echelon of the military mounted units to display all the top traits of horsemanship.

As time passed by Eventing developed into a sport, but not only a sport but an Olympic sport where only these special breed of riders could display the precision, determination and pure guts of mastering the control, discipline and energy of the finest animals bred on this planet.

If you are an Eventer, realise one thing, there will be no finer rider, student or fearless horse on this planet than you and your horse. Support this sport, support your fellow members of Eventing as they are your family and keep your heads held high when things go wrong. There is no other sports person in this world that risks as much as you do, achieves more than you do and rakes the rewards as much as you do.

“For one to fly, one needs only to take the reins”

“Throw your heart over the fence and your horse will follow it”

“The air of heaven is that which blow between a horses ears”

“No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle”
