The final day of the Indiana Eventing Association (IEA) Horse Trials and Training and Novice Three-Day Events was action packed and blessed with a fourth day of sunny, warm weather. Each day of the weekend the humidity has increased, but happily the riders did not have to deal with any rain and the potential problems of difficult footing and slippery tack.
Novice Three-Day Show Jumping Final
It always helps to see a warm and friendly face when heading to warm up for that all-important test or jump round.
The day that everyone had been waiting for had arrived – the endurance phase including two sessions of roads and tracks, the all-important and much discussed steeplechase, and finally Jon Wells' cross-country course featuring a brand new second water complex. Riders, coaches, grooms, officials and volunteers all look forward to this day at any event and at the 2017 Indiana Eventing Association Horse Trials and Classic Format Three-Day it was especially true.
The Indiana Eventing Association Horse Trials' dressage competition made use of arenas which were first developed on the property in the late 1980s when Indianapolis hosted the 1987 Pan American Games. The arena footing and rails have been revamped over the last 10 years thanks to cooperation between the Indiana Horse Council, the Johnson County Parks system, and the various breed and discipline groups that actively use the Hoosier Horse Park (HHP).
