NEW DELHI: The national equestrian championship for the eventing discipline will be held at the RVC Center and College in Meerut from April 24, the national federation announced on Friday.
The championship, which ends on May 1, will also serve as a preparatory event for the Asian Games.
Eventing is an equestrian event where a single horse and rider combination competes against other competitors in the three disciplines of dressage, cross country and show jumping over three different days like an equestrian triathlon.
Competitors accumulate penalty points in each phase and at the end of the event, the pair with the lowest score wins the honors.
“The National Equestrian Championship is one of those events where budding athletes gain visibility and where competitions are held at the highest level. The event will also be an important stepping stone for riders preparing to represent the country at upcoming Asian Games held in Hangzhou, China,” Lt. Col. MM Rahman, co-secretary of the Indian Equestrian Federation, said in a statement.
The NEC will begin with a veterinary inspection on the first day, a dressage test on the second day, a cross-country test on the third day and a show jumping test on the last day of competition.
The event will be organized in five categories with different levels of difficulty namely: – (a) Pre-Novice, (b) Novice, (c) Concours Complet National (CCN) 1*, (d) Concours Complet National (CCN) 2* and (e) Concours National Complet (CCN) 3*.
