Twilight Eventing Series

About our Twilight Eventing Series

Mid-week Blues? Join us for these quick, fun, casual events. Never get bored at Twilight Eventing!

Twilight Eventing includes all three disciplines (M-Elem). We start as early as entries warrant and have an Elementary division, too, so bring the youngsters (4-legged and 2-legged)!

We will also offer CTs (Combined Test: Dressage and SJ only).

Rules & Guidelines

  • Have all your gear required for the three phases and your horse.
  • You should have completed your whole event within 45 minutes of your dressage time.
  • Dress for all phases the same as you would for Cross-Country.
  • The course maps will be available at http://www.mycoursewalk.com
  • The course will not be the same for each event
  • This is a schooling experience. No ribbons.
  • After your warm up, proceed to your Dressage arena ready to start at your appointed time. Late arrivals will not be honored. Dressage is run and scored under the same rules as for USEA events.
  • Put on your horse’s SJ boots, warm up over a few jumps in the warm up area and proceed to the SJ arena.
  • SJ is run and scored under the same rules as USEA events.
  • Change your horse’s boots, put on your vest and proceed to the start of the cross-country course.
  • If riding multiple horses, bring a groom to handle your horses between rides. The compressed format makes it difficult to be on time for multiple rides without assistance.
  • You may ride your entire event (including dressage) in your XC attire (bridle, saddle, vest, boots etc.)

The cross country course is made up 14 to 18 jumps with a length up to 1700m with scoring being the same as USEA events.

*(Each XC Jump effort has a choice of Elementary (2′-2’3″), BN .79m (2′-7″), N  .90m (2′-11″),  T  1.0m (3′-3″), or P/T up to 1.1m (3′-7″). Choose any 1 of these at each jump number. A fall and you are eliminated.  If you are having trouble at a particular fence, and another rider is coming up, please move to the side to allow the other rider to continue. Riders may jump any obstacle including water, banks, ditches on their way to the next numbered jump.

  • All payments must be completed on Compete Easy.
  • No checks, no cash, no website or Venmo payment.
  • Certificate/vouchers holders, email the show office at mdhorsetrials@gmail.com for entry instructions.
  • Refunds: Before final closing, refunds less $25 office fee. After closing, refunds will only be given if someone fills your place from the wait list. If there is no wait list there will be NO REFUND and NO CREDIT after closing!
  • Show Cancellation: In the interest of horse and rider welfare and safety, the weather forecast will be taken into account at or after the closing date. A sufficiently unfavorable forecast will cancel the event. If we cancel the event, a full refund will be given minus a $10 office fee through Compete Easy.
  • You must print two copies of your pinny number based on what is assigned to you with the ride times. Bring your numbers and pinny holder with you! Use an old bridle number or buy a universal bridle number.
  • Run under USEA eventing rules, except as noted above in “About Twilight Eventing”
  • Each rider may enter only ONE horse per level. To request special consideration, please email the secretary at mdhorsetrials@gmail.com. Additional horses entered without permission will be waitlisted regardless of entry date or entry status.
  • Medical arms bands/bracelets are required for all jumping phases
  • Entry status will be emailed to you and posted on the website.
  • Timetable – to be run in a shortened eventing format as explained below. Event starts at approximately 3:00 pm depending on # of entries.
  • Additional dates for the Series may be announced. Check calendar at www.themarylandhorsetrials.com. Space is limited.
  • Use standard bio security practices:
    • Don’t let horses touch or share equipment, drink out of the same bucket, etc.
    • If your horse has a fever, don’t come.
    • Don’t touch other people’s horses.
    • Wash your hands frequently if you must touch other horses e.g. a trainer with multiple students who don’t board in the same barn.
  • The EDCC recommends a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection for out of state horses and a health declaration for all. We encourage people to take temps and do a self assessment. Safety for all. One wash stall open.
  • Check for the most recent outbreak reports at: equinediseasecc.org/alerts
