The 2 Phases
of driving TREC
Orienteering and Regularity phase
This circuit, from 1,5 to 5 km, is to be performed in an ideal time which means a maximum of 12km/h. It presents a range of natural or simulated difficulties: gate, tree trunk, ditch, footbridge, hedge, water crossing, immobility, step-up, etc... Judges grade the efficiency, the style or chosen pace by the competitors and the potentials penalties.
This phase that occures the day after the POR phase enables to evaluate the horses' abilities of recovering after a sustained effort.
