Tuesday, the first day of competition, for the New Hope riders, was Equitation, Drill Team, and Trail. For the volunteers there was getting horses, riders, side walkers and horse leaders to John Justin Arena for Equitation and Will Rogers Coliseum for trail. Several volunteers participated in several (or more) consecutive events. In a number of cases, they stayed with the same horse for several riders and events.

Equitation – the rider rode his/her horse around the arena, following the instructions of the announcer. Such as “walk your horse,” “trot,” “cantor,” “reverse and (one of the previous three).” English Equitation:
