The Versatile Riding Horse Competition is an Olympic competition, otherwise it is called an equestrian triathlon, because it combines 3 trials - dressage, jumping and an extremely exciting field trial. In the classic eventing, riders compete in a different test each day, usually starting with dressage during which they receive a% grade, missing values up to 100% are penalty points, i.e. a dressage result of 72% gives 28 penalty points. The next day, the competition moves to the cross, where the field trial takes place, the competitors have to overcome even 20-30 natural obstacles on a several-kilometer route, travel times can reach even several minutes of fast galloping. Riders receive penalty points for exceeding the time allowed, horse disobedience or errors in the flag indicating the width and direction of the obstacle being jumped. The last day of the competition is a classic obstacle jumping test on the park, it is a real test for horses that overcame the exhausting cross-country test the day before. The winner is the competitor with the lowest possible number of penalty points.
