How To Enjoy The Event

The following information will help you better understand the Event and safely
enjoy watching the best of the best as they compete in the only CCI4*
in the United States.

Dressage (Thursday/Friday)

Horses are “on the muscle,” fit and excited for the coming days of competition. Though they are listening to their rider during the more-controlled Dressage phase, sounds from outside sources can interrupt their concentration and ruin one or more movements.

  • Please maintain a respectful silence during a competitor’s ride.
  • Applause is welcome at the end of the test after the rider has saluted.

Cross-Country (Saturday)

Cross-Country is the most exciting part of the Three-Day Event and you will without a doubt be caught up in the excitement! Since you are able to get very close to the action, please remember the following:

  • After a rider and horse have successfully negotiated an obstacle, your applause is welcome; however you may unintentionally cause a competitor to be eliminated if you shout encouragement or directions to a rider on course.
  • The horse and rider always have the right of way.
  • Please remain outside the Galloping Lanes and only use the designated cross-over points to cross them.
  • Stewards will blow a whistle when a horse is approaching.
  • Please keep close track of your children for their safety as well as that of the competitors.
  • Please keep dogs on leashes at all times.
  • Please follow all crowd controllers’ directions; they are there to keep you and the competitors safe.
