Eventing Competitions

Eventing is possibly the strongest discipline within the club starting with the hunter trials in March/ April followed by the IPC hunter trials which is a pairs competition for Juniors and a team of three competition for Intermediate and a singles for Seniors Members. The hunter trial championships usually takes place in spring.

IPC Eventing Championship and One Day Events

The hunter trials are then followed by One Day Events (ODE’s) which normally start in late June/ early July and run through August again culminating with the IPC Championships for Junior, Intermediate and Senior teams. To qualify for the Horse Trials/ Eventing Championships in August you must have completed one cross country clear round and one round with a maximum of 20 penalties in the ODE qualifiers during June/July.


KHPC have over the past number of years run an U12/Novice ODE which normally attains entries of over 200. This event is an excellent opportunity to introduce the younger and less experienced members to Eventing in a wonderfully relaxed and fun atmosphere. The event also raises badly needed monies for training etc. during the year.
