Class 3 - Senior and Junior Open. Judged as Seniors and Juniors (16 yrs and under) on either horse or pony.

Knocking down a barrel adds 5 seconds to time, knocking 3 barrels = run will not be counted.  No excessive use of whip or aids - excessive use may incur disqualification at the judges discretion. 

Riders can enter as many times as they wish on different horse but each horse must only enter once per class, i.e no horse sharing in class.
No restrictions on horse or pony heights, just horse and rider a sensible match.
