About the Disciplines at River Glen

 

Dressage

Dressage is a competitive sport, with riders competing against a set of standards for various levels of proficiency.  Dressage can be a very difficult sport to master, as its focus is the emphasis of a horse's natural movements. It is an elegant and precise sport and is a major component of the equestrian events at the Olympic Games.

Eventing

Eventing is an equestrian event which comprises dressage, cross-country and show jumping, also called stadium jumping. Competition is held over one to three days and is also known as Combined Training.

Hunter / Jumper

Speed, precision, rapidity: the rider-horse team must tackle a course of 6 to 14 obstacles, in a specific time, committing the least possible faults.

Team Roping

In one of rodeo’s few team events, two ropers, a “header” and a “heeler,” work together to catch a steer.

The header is the first cowboy out of the box. He may rope the steer around the head and one horn, around the neck or around both horns, which are specially wrapped for the event. As with all timed events, if the header fails to give the animal its alotted head start, a 10-second penalty is added to the total time.

After making his catch, the header rides to the left, taking the steer in tow. The heeler moves in and ropes both hind legs. Catching only one hind leg results in a five-second penalty. If the heeler tosses his loop before the header has changed the direction of the steer and has the animal moving forward, it’s called a “crossfire” and it results in disqualification.

The clock is stopped when the slack has been taken out of both ropes and the contestants are facing each other.
