Tri-Equithon Team Horse Trials

Have you always wanted to compete in a Horse Trail but could not complete one or more phases?

We established the Triequithon Team Trials for teams of 2 or 3 riders to complete 3 phases as a group in our three-phase events. Effective teamwork can assist in maximizing your abilities for the best possible score.

How to Compete

  1. Assemble your dream team of the best horse and rider combinations for each phase.
  2. Select your Team’s Division/level. This could be 2–3 people & 2–3 horses in whatever combination works for your team. Take full advantage of your combined talents to achieve your best score in each phase.
  3. You will be registered and recognized by your team name, so a good name is a must.

Rules

  • The Triequithon is not a qualifying event for NCDCTA points.
  • Team Trials will run at the end of each division, regardless of your competition level.
  • You may not use your high score in the Team Trials to improve your score if you are also competing in the regular Horse Trial.
  • Green as Grass can be assisted.
