    Thanks! It doesn't help that they are English as well!

    I also get confused by some of the acronyms I see on some of the message boards. Just starting to get into Eventing, and have no idea what the difference between a CIC and a CCI is? I know that my local events are either USEA recognized or unrecognized horse trials but I don't know how that fits into those...

    There is a lot of terminology we don't need to know if we're not particularly interested in that discipline.

    Poloxgal, don't be sorry for asking anything.

    Sorry, though, I can't really help you with the CCI or CIC thing. If nobody answers in this thread, you can make a new thread in the eventing subforum and you'll get more answers there than you can shake a stick at .

    Also, don't forget that there is a "search" feature on the forum and you can search for keywords.

    smrobs is right...never be afraid to ask anything!

    I've often wondered the same thing about eventing levels but was always too lazy to ask. The other area I've often wondered about is all those hunter classes they have in the US and the differences. Such as, is there a difference between Medal and Maclay?

    I don't ride any of that, I have some backyard pasture puffs that I ride english. But I have always wondered...

    There is nothing wrong with learning about disciplines outside of your chosen one. I love learning about different disciplines, it gives me more to draw on from my training toolbox.


    From what I understand, and please correct me if I'm wrong! - the major difference between CCI and CIC came into play when CCI competitions had four phases to the cross country, (A, B, C, D in CCI vs just D in CIC) now they both just consist of the last phase. Now, CCI is a longer distance than CIC, and CIC competitions can be held in a single day. CCI has up to 4* rankings, CIC has only up to 3*.
    There may be other differences, and/or I may be totally wrong on the above - so, if anyone can, please correct me!!

    One and the same - It's the Maclay medal final, which is the creme de la creme of Equitation completion.
    Hunters judge the horse, so you want a horse with a fantastic stride, beautiful movement, and a big round jump.
    Equitation judges the rider, so you want a horse that can set up to a fence perfectly all the time, and showcase the rider. An EQ horse doesn't have to be a fancy mover, and they tend to have a flatter jump. You want something easy to ride (ie easy to sit trot and canter, and a smooth jump) so they don't have to be the nicest mover. You need a horse that's totally broke broke broke and that responds instantly to an aid.
    Both hunter and EQ will have similar looking fences (more natural) but you can see more jumpery jumps in the EQ. Your EQ courses are going to be a lot more technical, too.

    Hope that helps!

    Actually, the Medal and the Maclay are different classes and have different finals. Both are equitation classes. There are four different equitation finals: The Pessoa/USEF Medal Finals (commonly called just The Medal) held in Harrisburg every year, The ASPCA Maclay Finals is held at the National Horse Show in KY every year (used to be held at Madison Square Garden), The USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Class has an East Coast and and a West Coast Finals, and the Washington International Equitation Classic is held at the Washington International Horse Show in Washington, DC. Each final has a different qualifying process and slightly different rules.

    I can't stress this enough, don't be afraid to ask questions! It's one of the best ways to learn! :)

    I personally just learned a few different things from reading this thread already!
