The sport of Eventing has undergone dramatic changes in the last 10-15 years. The loss of the Classic long format has changed the type of horses required to excel, FEI rules and increased qualification criteria has seen a proliferation of CICs, which in turn impacts national horse trials at all levels. Rules to improve safety of both horse and rider have increased participation costs for riders. The need to design and build many different cross-country courses for events running national and FEI divisions at the same competition has forced organizers to increase entry fees.
