1a – Lead Rein (competitors who compete in this class may not compete in any other class)

2B – Unassisted


Class 350cm Pairs – can include assisted riders, but not lead-rein.


· Each rider to jump the full course against the clock, with a change-over in a marked box.

· Fastest combined time wins. No penalties - refusals just add time, each knock-down adds 2 seconds to the time.

· If rider one has 3 refusals at a fence, their partner can take over from the same fence to finish that course and then continue on to jump their own round – riding through the change-over box between rounds. If the rescue rider then also has 3 refusals at any fence, the pair are eliminated.


Class 460cm


Class 570cm


Class 6Top Score – fences from 70cm – 90cm with one optional joker fence at 1m


· On the bell ride through the start in any direction – you then have 60 seconds to score as many points as you can. On the second bell, ride through the finish to stop the clock.

· Each fence cleared will earn points according to the height / difficulty of the fence.

· Jumps can be jumped in any order and each fence can be jumped as often as you like, however you must jump at least 3 different jumps. The joker fence must not be jumped before the second bell.

· Refusals just add time to the clock, fences knocked down will not be replaced and cannot be jumped again.

· Once you have finished, you can then opt to try to jump the joker. Clearing the joker adds 100 points to your score – refusing or knocking it down deducts 100 points

· In the event of a tie on points, the fastest time then takes the higher placing
