This competition will consist of One Round of Show Jumps followed immediately by a round of the Cross Country.  Any Show Jumping and Cross Country penalties accrued will be combined to give the total penalties, with the winner being the competitor/s with the least number of penalties. Both rounds will be timed and in the event of a tie for any place the competitor/s with the fastest Show Jumping round will be placed higher.  Competitor/s eliminated in the show jumping phase may proceed to the cross country phase at the discretion of the show jumping judge.

Please note: Competitors may only enter a maximum of two classes, one of which must be Pairs. No fixed peak hats to be worn on the Cross Country and Medical Armbands MUST be worn. Course will be ‘open flagged’, ie if you wish to jump the larger fences, providing you are between the red and white flags, you will not incur any penalties.
