SENIOR STYLE JUMPING( 2 riders to jump 75cm and 2 riders to jump 85cm )or individual entry 75cm or 85 cm.


The show jumping will be run under Show Jumping rules set out in section SJ1 from page 54 in the BRC 2022 handbook.

Style Jumping is open to teams of four riders or as an individual. Each team consists of two riders jumping a 75cm course and two riders jumping an 85cm course. Individuals may choose the height at which they jump. Riders jump one round and are judged on the style of their riding. Riders must salute the judge when entering the arena, then canter a figure of eight until the signal to start is given; during this time, they will be judged for style on the flat.

When jumping, the rider is judged on how they ride the whole course, particular attention being given to how they ride the turns and present the horse at a fence. The rider needs to show balanced approaches to the fences and be able to maintain a good forward canter in a rhythm. The position of the rider at take-off, in the air, on landing and in the following strides is assessed along with the correct judgement of pace. It is assumed that the rider is aware of the correct leading leg and is able to change it if needed (a flying change correctly and quietly done is acceptable as is a simple change).

Show jumping will run under Option 2 where 2 rounds will be ridden, with a jump-off following straight on from the second round, with all competitors going forward to the jump-off section.

More information on eligibility can be found in the BRC Handbook 2022 page 93.

Entry fee is for show jumping £15 per person or £60 for a team.

Entry fee for style jumping £13 per person or £52 for a team.
