Combined Training

Combined Training consists of a Dressage Test (in a 40m arena) followed by a Showjumping course (around 13 jumping efforts, including a double and related distance).

Area Qualifiers are usually held in May in order to choose the riders who will go forward to represent the Club at the Irish Pony Club Festival which is usually held in July. 

The aim of Combined Training is to help the participant develop confidence in their partnership with their pony. Area Qualifier winners in the Intermediate and Open riders categories are eligible to enter the Combined Training competition at the Royal Dublin Horse Show.
