The Equestrian events test the ability of horse and rider to display both athletic prowess and supreme elegance.
Riders first complete the Team Test within their grades, followed by the Individual Championship Test, looking to get the best possible scores from the judges.
After this the scores of both tests are added together to make the Team score, with the best three scores across all the grades counting. Individual medals are also awarded for each grade on the merit of the Individual Championship Test.
After this riders undertake the Freestyle Test, competing for individual medals in each grade in this event.
