The international tournament for clubs and riders
An international tournament in 4 stages
Between September and June, Equi-rider offers its "Riding Cup", an international tournament organizable in 4 stages (contests) in your equestrian center
Multiple disciplines are in the spotlight. Find the detailed process for each of them:
Points to accumulate
Riders and clubs will be ranked by points awarded and added up over the 4 stages. The provisional classification will be visible and will become definitive. All the performances will be verified (during July 2024).
Prize-giving ceremony: more than €60,000 in prize money
At the end of the competition, the 8 best riders in each discipline and in each event will receive a set of prizes of great value. The top 3 clubs in each discipline will also receive prizes to improve their equipment and services. More info to come soon.

Who are we?
Equi-rider is an eco-friendly and international equestrian competition circuit that allows equestrian centers and riders to compete remotely.
The idea was thought through during the period of lockdown. As we are ourselves players in the sector, based in Normandy, we asked ourselves these questions:
Is it possible to practice our sport from a distance, while breaking the borders, respecting the sanitary measures, limiting the environmental impact and also limiting the stress caused by the transport on our horses?
With these questions in mind, our reflection led us to develop this innovative and ambitious project: Equi-rider!
The process is as follows:
- The same course/educational situation is set up in multiple clubs
- Riders compete in different events and are filmed
- Clubs upload the results of their riders as well as videos as evidence
- Equi-rider verifies the performances, the rankings become final, and prizes are sent!
For disciplines where the assessment is made by judges (Hunter, Dressage, Para dressage, and Equifeel), only the video is required, and the judgment is made through an innovative tool integrated into our platform, allowing qualified and certified judges to deliberate. Protocols are automatically generated and available on the accounts of relevant riders and clubs.
If you are a professional rider, an equestrian center, an organizer of horse shows, you can register on the platform. Once registered, you will be able to register your riders and receive the document to set up the course to ride at home.
If you are an individual, you can participate in Equi-rider competitions in Dressage, Eventing, Para Dressage and Equifeel. If you wish to participate in the other disciplines, you can look for an organizing club in your area.
To get a rider account, you can register yourself or let your club create an account for you. An Equi-rider ID and password are generated automatically, you just have to ask the club that registered you to give you your login and password. You can then change them and personalize your account.
