The NVBW organizes three competitions every year. Two club competitions and one interclub (European) competition. The competitions give the members of the NVBW a concrete goal to work towards and are a totally different experience than the trainings. Everyone is judged in the same way during competitions. However, the level of the rider is taken into consideration.
The NVBW is a member of the International Tentpegging Federation (ITPF) and the only accredited Dutch association that in competitions focuses on the use of sable, lance, carbine and revolver on horseback.
