March 15, 2013--Texas Rose Horse Park on Highway 110, Tyler, Texas, expects over 300 horse entries at the Texas Rose Horse Park Spring Horse Trials on March 30 and 31st.

A Horse Trial is best described as an equestrian triathlon comprised of three phases - dressage, cross country, and show jumping. An exciting International and Olympic sport, Eventing is unique in its demand for the precise partnership between horse and rider. The grace and elegance of dressage; the speed, power and endurance of cross country; and the agility and precision of show jumping fully test the skills and fitness of each horse and rider while creating an exciting and breathtaking experience for spectators.
Texas Rose Horse Park proudly offers the first USEA approved Advanced Cross Country course in all of Area V (Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas & Oklahoma). The Spring Horse Trials competition will feature its first-ever Advanced division (USEA’s highest National division). The Adequan USEA Gold Cup Series Final at the 2013 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championship, a National Event presented by Bit of Britain, will also be held at Texas Rose Horse Park, September 26-29.
“The Texas Rose Horse Park’s March event will not only be a trial run for the Advanced competition in September, it will be remembered as the first Advanced in Area V history” – Eventing USA magazine, March 2013
