ARENA SHOW CROSS

We run a mixture of training shows and competitions both on weekday afternoons/evenings and daytime weekends.

Also known as Eventer's Challenges. These are fun and challenging events, consisting of one continuous course that starts with showjumps and then is followed by a variety of working hunter and more solid style portable cross country jumps. A test of partnership and skill, the course involves some related distances, challenging combinations and long flowing lines. Overall, the perfect preparation for Showjumping, Cross Country and Eventing competitions!

You may even qualify for a variety of Championships across the country. 

 

Classes from 65cm - 95cm.

Some classes are based on the fastest time with fewer penalities, and others are on 'optimum time', which means the combination tries to take a set amount of time to ride the course. For every second that they are away from the optimum time, they are given 0.4 time penalties. Those with the fewest penalties are placed higher. 
 

4 penalties are given for a knockdown, refusal or cross of the track.

3 refusals, fall or wrong course, is an elimination. 

We run classes from 65-95cm.
The optimum time is announced before each class.

Riders may choose to wear XC or SJ attire. Body protectors are recommended but not compulsory.
