The specific purpose for dressage is to develop a horse’s natural athletic ability and maximize its suppleness and attentiveness, all the while fostering ultimate harmony between horse and rider.
Somewhat comparable to a human triathlon, the discipline of eventing was historically developed to test the skills required of the working military mount — athleticism, agility, bravery, speed and endurance.
The primary focus of para-dressage sport is to provide educational and competitive opportunities for athletes with physical disabilities. In competition, each athlete is classified according to their functional ability.
Combined driving is designed to test a horse’s or a team’s speed, stamina, obedience, and athleticism, in three distinct and demanding phases usually held over the course of three days.
A reining competition essentially shows off the skills and athletic abilities necessary in the working ranch horse. Horses needed to be sturdy, quick, responsive, and agile to be able to herd and move cattle and other livestock across the range.
As its name implies, the discipline of endurance tests a horse’s fitness and stamina, and a rider’s horsemanship skills, in a long-distance competitive format where the condition of the horse is paramount.
“Funding received from the USET Foundation has made it possible for riders like myself to realize our dreams at the highest levels of equestrian sport. This financial support is the cornerstone to achieving international success for our top rides and horses.”McLain Ward, Jumping Athlete
