Classic

Hello, my name is Emily Worth and today I am writing to tell you about my experience with the long format three-day event. I live in Selma, North Carolina, and am 15 years old. Three years ago, in 2015, I competed in an assisted Beginner Novice division, and while I was there I got to see the long format being run. It looked like a lot of fun and seemed like an amazing opportunity. For the next two years, it became one of my long-term goals to compete in one. I was having trouble with my horse at our level, so unfortunately, that dream got pushed back for a little while.

“They were all hard,” Cathy Wieschhoff said when describing classic, long format three-day events in the 1990s and early 2000s. A witness to the evolution of three-day eventing, Wieschhoff’s background includes working for U.S. Eventing Hall of Fame member Torrance Watkins, many years alongside the O’Connors, eleven trips to the Kentucky Three-Day Event, and a 15th place finish at Burghley CCI4*.

“Our country has the biggest attrition rate in eventing than any other country. I believe we don't let our horses rest long enough. We compete too much and don't condition enough.” One of the most familiar faces in eventing, Max Corcoran is the go-­to girl for horse welfare.
