Horse Trials

Held each fall just outside of Carbondale, Illinois, the Dunnabeck Horse Trials are a spectacular regional equestrian event sponsored by the Boskydell Pony Club. Performance categories include Cross Country, Show (or Stadium) Jumping, and Dressage Critiques. Event organizer Brian McElheny, M.D. emphasizes that one of the distinctive features of the event is its focus on cross country and jumps, both of which can be difficult to complete successfully over the region's arduous terrain. He further explains how the level of difficulty increases along with the length of the course and obstacles encountered by riders.
