Team Showjumping

This is mainly local inter-branch jumping by teams of 3 or 4, but some inter-school events also take place.

Typically two rounds are jumped: 1st untimed, 2nd against the clock - usually over a raised course. Pony Club rules permit a 3rd round over a shortened course if two or more teams finish round 2 on zero total faults, but this seldom happens since usually it's getting late & everyone wants to get home!

This is very much a team event as the best three scores in each round count towards your team score, so reliability and steadiness are just as important as speed. It is also possible to enter as an individual, but most people find it more fun to take part as one of a team.

If you want to be in a showjumping team contact (at least 2 weeks before the event):

Team Team manager Typical age (varies - see below) Typical jump height (varies - see below)
Open Sarah Muirhead (01884 251488) email

Under 21 2'9" - 3'0" 1st round
Junior Ginny Cottrell (01823 681190) email
14 and under 2'3" - 2'6" 1st round
Mini

Ginny Cottrell (01823 681190) email

11 and under 1'6" - 2'0" 1st round

Variations: Unfortunately ages are not standardised for these competitions: some are age on 1st Jan, and some are age on the day. And the Open / Junior / Mini age brackets vary between competitions, as do the jumping heights - check each schedule carefully! If you are a borderline case check with the relevant organiser(s) for a given event. In most events you can enter in two or even three age groups if you meet the age requirements and can jump the fences.
