To be followed immediately by:
Section II: Jumping
NO time will be allowed between these sections for any adjustment to tack or rider’s dress. Maximum height of fences 0.90m (4 years) 1.05m (5 years). Fall of horse or rider or a total of 3 refusals will result in elimination.
Note: fence height at Final 1.00m (4 year olds) and 1.10m (5 year olds).
Section III: Conformation (12 marks) and Quality (8 marks)
Note: following Section III, the ten horses with the highest marks will proceed to section IV.
In the event of equality of marks at this stage, the horse with the higher jumping mark will be
given precedence. Should this still produce an equality of marks, all horses on that same jumping mark will come forward.
Section IV: Suitability and Potential
Only the top ten horses are required for this section where they will be judged for potential international quality to make a WORLD CLASS THREE DAY EVENT HORSE. The 5 year old horses will be required to gallop one at a time. The 4 year olds will only be required to show a forward moving canter indicating they could learn to gallop with further development and maturity. It is the responsibility of the rider to ensure they present themselves in time for this section which usually takes place 10-15 minutes after the last horse.
Note: in the event of equality of marks at the end, i.e. after all four sections, the jumping mark will be given precedence. Should this still produce an equality of marks, the highest mark attained in the final section will be the deciding factor.
