Eventing is the equestrian sport made up of three phases; dressage, show jumping and cross country. Due to most horses have a prefered phase and how quickly things can go wrong during the cross country phase, you quite often see the leader board shaken up during the competition.
Eventing is usually one day, with all phases happening on that one day. However, bigger eventing competitions happen over three days with the cross country phase being longer and more testing.
