Woodside is Horse Country


It is an event which comprises dressage, cross-country and show-jumping.

This event has its roots as a comprehensive cavalry test requiring mastery of several types of riding. It has three main formats, the one day event (ODE), two day event and the three day event (3DE). The sport was once referred to as "Militaire", and there is such a format that riders complete all three events in one day, called a "horse trial".


Derek is an FEI (I) International Level Course Designer as well as a US Equestrian Federation National Course Advisor residing in Carmel Valley, CA (USA). He designed the Course at the Horse Park at Woodside.
