No Horse can compete in both the Novice and the Intermediate Show jumping. Entry fees are £14.50 for those who qualify for the 10% subsidy (ie all club members who havent yet done their 2 days volunteering) and £13.00 for those who qualify for the 20% subsidy (ie those on the volunteering register)
Satrurday January 31st – The Novice Winter Show Jumping
Teams of 4 – with the faults from 2 rounds collected and the best 3 scores are carried through to make a team score. First round is 80cm and the second round is 85cm. The course is built to height with fillers and spreads and they are both run indoors. Team members tend to run back to back so it’s a great way to egg each other on and if we get as far as the jump off it makes it pretty exciting. Horses must have no BS winnings and must be at least 5 years old. To encourage some of the newer membser and less regular team members to compete we will be fielding a “Have a Go” team as well as a “Kick on and Win” team which means there is no pressure and there is equal opportunity for all to compete – just make sure you let us know which team you would rather be on.
Sunday 1st Feb – the intermediate Winter Show-Jumping
This is a new comeptition and will along side the junior competition on Sunday 1st Feb also at Bishop Burton. Heights are 95-100cm. Horses that competed in the Summer Open Show jumping may not compete in this competition. Horses must have less than £175 BS winnings
