Teams: Teams consist of 3 or 4 riders and a Stable Manager, all members rated as of the closing date of entries. Teams may be D-Teams, C-Teams, or mixed levels. Teams may be made up of riders competing in different jumping divisions.
Each rider will ride 4 competition rounds - 2 Jumper Rounds Table II 2(a), 1 Equitation Round, and 1 Take Your Own Line.
Take Your Own Line: In this competition, the obstacles are to be jumped only once in the order chosen by the competitor. The round is judged and scored the same as other rounds, i.e. refusals, knockdowns, and other disobediences are to be scored according to the table of penalties. Clear rounds are to be "ranked" according to time taken, fastest being first. All clear rounds receive bonus points according to the scale used for scoring the jump-off round.
Jump Off/Bonus Round: Jump off heights will not be raised. Jumping a clear round (no jumping, time, or technical faults) in the designated final round of classes offering a Jump-off round qualifies the competitor for the Jump-off round. The Jump-off will be a shortened course as shown on the course map and reviewed during a course walk. Pre-round briefing should include discussion of the Jump-Off, as NO additional coaching will be allowed for the Jump-Off. The Jump-Off will be according to USEF Table II 2 (a); The first round and first jump-off, if any, are decided by adding together the faults incurred over the course and any penalties for exceeding the Time Allowed. In the event of equality of faults after the first round, there will be one jump-off for first place only in which time will decide in the event of equality of faults. Coaches need to be familiar with USEF rules and appropriately prepare their students.
Equitation Round: That round will receive two scores: a normal knockdown/jumper score and an equitation score, which will be included like a bonus round score. The equitation round score must be included in the qualifying scores used to select Championship competitors. Each competitor will receive a written score sheet with Judge's comments after the close of the Rally. These scores are not subject to inquiries or protest. The expectations for Show Jumping Equitation are explained in USPC 2012 Rules for Show Jumping Rally, Section V: "Good approaches (and good jumps) are a combination of several important factors: balance, line, impulsion, pace, and distance…a good jumping performance is more than just jumping higher, faster, or more difficult fences or winning in competition. Good jumping is safer, smoother and easier for both horse and rider and unites them…Correct equitation over fences is that style, form and technique which best enables the horse to perform most correctly, efficiently and confidently over the course, including on the flat between fences and over the jumps."
Drug Testing Important Notice!
