Horse Riding in the Sun
Protect you and your horse from the sun and heat
Most horse riders have to endure whatever the weather brings, cold and wet or hot and humid, horse and pony lovers are out there. When it is set to be hot you need to give some thought about how to protect yourself (and your horse) from the sun.
If you are wearing correct riding clothes your skin will be mostly covered and safe from sunburn. The long sleeves which will protect your skin from grazing should you fall will also protect you from the sun`s rays. Your helmet will also protect your head.

Bluffers’ guide to eventing at WEG
What’s the format?
This is a three-day event, with the dressage and showjumping at four-star level and the cross-country at three-star level.
On the first two days (Thursday, 13 September and Friday, 14 September) every competitor rides a dressage test.
On Saturday, 15 September they all tackle the cross-country course, which will be designed by Mark Phillips.
Finally, on Sunday, 16 September, those still in the competition will do one round of showjumping, performing in reverse order of merit.
The competition also has two horse inspections, on Wednesday, 12 September and the morning of Sunday, 16 September, at which horses can be eliminated from the competition if the ground jury consider they are not fit to continue
