to showcase their horsemanship skills in disciplines not their own.
In this three-phase competition, the polo players and jumpers will
ride a dressage test to music; the dressage riders and polo players
will jump a Gamblers Choice course; and then each team will
play two chukkers of polo. The team that accumulates the highest
number of total points from all three phases wins the Triathlon.
previous years, the Sidelines Equestrian Triathlon was held as a
charity fundraiser with a gate charge, but this year, admission
