Entries close on Thursday prior to competition.
Late entries will be accepted if space is available after the close of entries at £5.00 extra per entry.
These events have proved very popular and as a result may start early in the morning and finish late in the evening.

The competition will be held over an initial course of coloured show jumps, followed immediately by a course of indoor cross country style fences. The show jumping starts with a bell and once you have completed the numbered show jumps, you proceed immediately into the cross country phase of the course.

The show jumping section will not be timed, though jumping penalties will be counted. The cross country section will be timed and the combination with the lowest penalty score at the end of the competition will be the winner.

Horses/ponies may take part in no more than 2 classes. Riders can choose to wear either show jumping attire or cross country colours. Body protectors are recommended but not compulsory.
