Eventing made more cost effective

Instead of running unaffiliated ODEs this year, Mendip Plains are trialing a new Eventer's Challenge to make eventing more affordable!

How does ‘Short Course Eventing’ 2 phase or 3 phase sound to you?

2 phase Short Course Eventing will include:

  • Show Jumping

  • Cross Country

3 phase Short Course Eventing will include:

  • Dressage Test

  • Show Jumping

  • Cross Country

The Short Course Eventing 2 phase is a ‘derby style’ competition, that will take place out on the main grass cross country course, with a section of 8-10 Show Jumps leading straight on to approximately 15 efforts over Cross Country fences, where competitors must get as close to the optimum time as they can. This will be appropriate to BE speeds at each level. Any faults will be incurred as per standard eventing rules.

The Short Course Eventing 3 phase will be as per SCE2 phase but include a dressage test that will be combined in your total score to give a final result as per eventing.

You will have a minimum of 40 minutes between dressage and jumping phases, SJ will run straight in to XC and you must be suitably dressed/equipped as per national XC rules for riding hats and body protectors.

The Entry Fee’s:

Short Course Eventing 2 phase - £55

Short Course Eventing 3 phase – £70

Note: the photographer at these events won't be me, it will be Indy Equine Photography, but I'll be around all summer for all the dressage, combined training and weekday showjumping so will hopefully catch you there soon!!
