Thank you to those who participated in our Cardiopulmonary Research Group studies at Waredaca 2014, Horse Park of New Jersey Horse Trials I, 2015 and Fair Hill Horse Trials, 2015. Without your continued support, this study would not be possible. So far we have instrumented 65 horses in the Beginner Novice through Intermediate levels. We will be at the Plantation Field International CIC in September and the Fair Hill International Three-Day in October and still need volunteers at all levels.

The Federation recommends that the vest should pass or surpass the current ASTM standard F1937 or be certified by the Safety Equipment Institute. Inflatable vests are permitted only when worn over a body protecting vest.

Any series of logs, ditches and banks can be called a cross-country course, and for lower-level horses and riders, simple and straightforward is far preferable to spooky and technical. Going up the levels, courses become progressively more difficult and more interesting, and at some of today’s bigger events, the cross-country course can showcase sponsors, entertain spectators and challenge horses and riders to the extreme.
