|SECTION II||To be followed immediately by:||Jumping. NO time will be allowed between these sections for any adjustment to tack or rider’s dress. Maximum height of fences 0.90m (4 year olds) 1.05m (5 year olds). Fall of horse or rider or a total of three refusals will result in elimination
Note: fence height at Final 1.00m (4 year olds) and 1.10m (five year olds).
|SECTION III||Gallop (10 marks)||Gallop: immediately after the jumping the 5 year old horses will be required to gallop. The 4
year olds will only be required to lengthen the canter indicating they could learn to gallop
with further development and maturity.
|SECTION IV||Conformation (12 marks) and Quality (8 marks)||Note: in the event of equality of marks after all four sections, the jumping mark will take
precedence. Should this still produce equality of marks, the highest mark attained in the gallop
section followed by the dressage section will be the deciding factor
