Class 5

CLASS 6 – TOP SCORE

Open to any horse/pony/ rider/combination.

Jumps from 50cm – 1M. The jumps are given a value number with the easiest jump having the lowest number and the hardest jump the highest number. Jumps do not have to be jumped in number order and not all jumps need be jumped. Start and finish flags are placed together so they can be passed through from either direction. The idea of this event is to get the highest score (from value number) in the time allowed. Riders make up their own course keeping in mind the ability of their horse you must pass through the flags to start your round. A jump can be scored twice only and any additional times it is jumped is a waste of time. Jumps can be jumped from both directions or the same direction. Any jump knocked down will not get a score and will not be put up again until the round is finished. Normal penalties for knock downs and refusals do not apply in this type of event. When the judge rings the bell, to signal the end of your round, ride as quickly as possible to pass through the flags - the time between when the bell rings and you pass through the flags will count if there are riders on equal scores.

Classes 1-6 will be split if numbers exceed 15 into the following sections:                  a)Horses  b)Ponies
