Three day eventing presents the ultimate challenge in horsemanship as horse and riders must execute and perfect three disciplines, dressage, cross country and show jumping to take the coveted title.
Performing well in one competition is never enough to secure victory. As the competition hots up so does the pressure and every penalised mistake can make all the difference between winning and losing.
