PAU: International Eventing CCI 5*L
The only 5* eventing competition in France, a thrilling event. Among only six in the world and an exceptional CAIO 4*. Cross-country, showjumping, marathon, dressage … with the best riders and drivers of the planet. A unique and breathtaking show!
The eventing competition consists of a sequence of three graded tests:
The first event is dressage
- Dressage is a basis for all equestrian disciplines aimed at developing the rider-horse relationship and advancing the horse’s qualities such as locomotion, suppleness and balance. In the competitions, the presentations are made on sequences composed of classical movements and imposed figures during covers of increasing difficulty where the horse evolves in the various paces.
The second test is a show jumping course
- A show jumping course consists of linking a course of obstacles without fault. This test requires a lot of technique to solve the difficulties of a course. The type of obstacle, the distances, the angles, the curves are varied, and it is up to the rider to adapt according to each obstacle by modifying the speed, the amplitude, the impulse, the trajectory of his horse to succeed his course without penalty.
The last event is the cross-country
- Cross-country consists of galloping over a varied terrain, such as meadows, undergrowth, paths, climbs, descents and to cross obstacles whose construction evokes natural situations: tree trunks, barriers, against high, against low, road crossing or ford.
