Looking for a competition that tests the bond between you and your horse?

No access to horse transport or you don’t want to ride?

Need goals to help you progress?

Natural-e tests your equitation skills from the comfort of your own yard. ​Rosettes and feedback are given to every competitor.

Tests changed monthly to keep variety. You don't need any fancy clothing, membership to any organisation or even a cameraman. In fact, all you need is a small area to film your test, a few obstacles, a camera and a YouTube account. Simply pick a test, practice it over a month, film it when you are ready and submit it.
