Eventing (or sometimes referred to as Horse Trials) combines different disciplines in one competition and is run on a cumulative penalty basis. It is also one of a handful of sports where men and women compete on equal terms and the genuine amateur can compete against a world or Olympic champion. It’s take discipline, determination, courage and patience to become eventer. – Dictionary

“I have always been a goal-oriented person. At eight years old, I set a goal for myself to achieve my ‘A’ rating. I achieved that in the fall of my pony club graduating year. I have a myriad of international experiences. I was selected to the international games team in 1991 which competed in Canada. I was one of the youngest members ever selected. I spent 4 years on the international mounted games team, USMGA, and competed all over Europe. I was on the only team to ever place second in the world MGA Championships on borrowed ponies; we managed that feat for two consecutive years. During that time, I also competed in all disciplines in pony club, qualifying for the national competition in every discipline. I, with my teammates, had won the national pony club competition on numerous occasions, in different disciplines. Multiple years I competed in two disciplines at the same National competition.” – in Colleen words
