Jumper Class Clarification:

Timed First Round – You will have one round of fences, to be timed once you cross the start line and stopped once you cross the finish line. Placings will be by fasted time with fewest faults.

Power & Speed – Run over a single course, with a jump off incorporated into the second half. First half will consist of 6 fences, if the rider/horse goes clear they may continue onto the second half of the course to be timed. If you hear a whistle, please stop after the 6 fences as you did not go clear.

Jump Off after All Clear Rounds – you will be called back to complete your jump off round if you went clear in your first round of the third class. You will be called back in the exact order of clear rounds, please be ready to go.
