Show Jumping is where a horse and rider combination are tested over a course of colourful obstacles, known as fences, which can be easily knocked down if they are hit. The goal is to complete the course in the fastest time without getting any faults.
Faults are gained when a fence is knocked down, the horse stops at a fence (refuse) or the horse runs around a fence (run out).
Show Jumping can take place both indoors and outdoors, so is perfect to enjoy all year round.
Intended to demonstrate the horse and rider’s courage, athletic ability, precision, speed and partnership, your aim is to jump a clear round. If you manage to jump clear, you will go through to the second stage which is called a “jump-off”. A jump-off is a shortened course which is timed. The winner is the horse and rider with the least faults and the fastest time in the jump-off.
There are various levels you can jump at and you can go on to compete as an individual or as part of a team.
All levels have a Training and Team manage, please check the Meet the Team page to see who manages your Childs level.
