Arena One Day Event: What is it?
Essentially it’s a combination of dressage, show jumping and cross-country done in our all-weather arenas. Eventing is the ultimate test of skill and trust between horse and rider.
What are our Objectives?
Claremorris School of Equitation was established in 1980 and essentially that was what it was - a "School of Equitation". It has evolved over the years and with the establishment of the Equestrian Shop it was renamed Claremorris Saddlery & Equestrian Centre. Many Riders/Ponies/Horses who first sampled competition with us have gone on to win Regional/National and European Titles.
In keeping with our mission, we pride ourselves in running FUN events giving both horse/pony and rider an enjoyable and positive experience where they learn and progress through the levels with many eventually joining Eventing Ireland, Showjumping Ireland or Dressage Ireland. Many friendships are made and when a fledgling is ready to move on to affiliated events, they will already have a network of people met through our events who can guide them in the process. We offer a variety of events/competitions to cater for the most nervous of rider to the more experienced rider and to everyone in between.
How does it work?
You enter online and you are given a dressage time
When you are finished your Dressage Phase you then go on to the Show jumping/X Country Phase.
You firstly do your show jumping phase, and then you go straight on to a series of cross-country obstacles.
There is an optimum time for the XC phase
The total time allowed for the course is generally twice the optimum time.
How do you win?
Your Dressage Percentage is subtracted from 100% to give your Dressage Penalties.
Clear rounds take priority over anyone with jumping faults. Show jumping is judged under SJ Rules
Knock Down = 4 Faults
1st Refusal = 4 Faults
2nd Refusal = 8 Faults
3rd Refusal = Elimination (You may still continue to X-Country)
Fall of Horse/Rider in any phase = Elimination (You may not re-mount unless assessed by First Aider)
Error in Course in any phase = Elimination (you may still be allowed to complete course) - For Training Event Error in Course is penalised by time - Elimination will occur if fences are omitted.
Cross Country Penalties are calculated on time. The time taken to complete the round is subtracted from the Optimum Time to give the number of X-Country Penalties.
Note: Riders must ride between the flags when going Cross Country – Failure to do so will incur Elimination.
The winner will be the person with the lowest score.

Body Protectors must be worn for SJ and Cross Country
