Horse and Rider:  The horse and rider compete over a jumping course and obstacles against the clock with 3 choices of heights –

  • 1st category - ground poles – a leading rein can be used
  • 2nd category - cross bars
  • 3rd category - larger jumps
  • Poor style or bad riding, knock downs, refusals or run outs, or falls will give you penalties! You must state which category you will do when you check in.
  • On finishing the rider must touch the hand of the dog handler before the dog and handler can start. If the rider is going to run with the dog they must dismount and give their horse to the handler
  • The dog may be off the lead if the handler considers it safe
  • The dog and his handler completes the course consisting of obstacles, such as a slalom, jumps, tunnel, seesaw, against the clock, and with penalties if the judge thinks fit.
  • This will make a combined score for the horse and dog.
