For more than a decade, Rebecca Farm has created courses of the highest quality—and The Event is the biggest of its kind in the United States with more than 450 competitors, 350 volunteers, and over 20,000 spectators. In addition to the competition, a trade fair with arts and crafts is also offered throughout The Event with a wide range of food concessions. "The Event at Rebecca Farm is truly world class," says Jim Wolf, executive director of sports programs for the United States Equestrian Federation. "The facilities, the footing, and outstanding organization combine to create a premier world class event." The sport of Eventing is best described as an equestrian triathlon with historic military ties meant to replicate what a horse and rider would go through in the cavalry. The horse and rider compete as a partnership in all aspects of horsemanship to complete the three tests as a team, with their cumulative performance determining their final standing. Dressage is designed to test obedience and the harmony between horse and rider. Cross-country is designed to test endurance with horses running long distances at high rates of speed. It also tests courage, boldness, confidence, and stamina of both horse and rider. Show jumping examines precision, agility, and technique while jumping over high obstacles and turning when the rider commands it. It is also a test of condition and focus after completing the dressage and cross-country phases.
