The Eventing Derby competition consists of a Dressage Test followed by a Jumping Course combining both stadium and cross-country fences. There are approximately 12-22 obstacles on varied terrain, and MAY include banks, ditches, and water. The Derby is a Schooling Show and provides a safe venue for new competitors, green horses, as well as a schooling opportunity for the experienced competitor. The Derby provides a cross-training opportunity for both horse and rider, regardless of their equestrian discipline.
