General Information

In classes 1, 2 and 3 there are three phases with a collective overall score deciding the winners. The first phase is the equitation test, usually followed by the stable management section (this can be taken before the equitation test if preferred) and the last phase is the showjumping section. Classes 4 and 5 are equitation only.
