Show Jumping, Eventing
During an eventing competition there are three phases involved they are dressage, show jumping and cross country.

The height and technical difficulty of the fences increases as horse and rider combinations progress up through the levels.

During this show jumping round which was taken during an Intermediate eventing competition at Longleat House in Wiltshire, England, the course involved fences up to 1m 25 and included upright and spread fences with a double, a treble as well as several related distances. For eventing water jumps are not included but water trays and show jumping fillers such as walls, planks and gates are often used.

As with pure show jumping competitions the rider must enter the arena and wait for the signal before starting their round, once the signal has been given the rider has 45 seconds to pass through the start and begin their round. Upon finishing the rider must also pass through the finish or they will incur elimination.

Depending on the reason for elimination, at the organizers discretion you may still be allowed to still continue on with the cross country phase but you will be HC and your score will no longer be included in the results.
