A mix of Show Jumps and Cross Country fences including combinations (at appropriate levels), water complexes, banks, ditches, and mounds. Scoring: A style score between 0-10 will be given by the judge for each fence. 0 = not performed. 10 = excellent. Focus will be on pace, fluidity, synchronization of horse and rider. Faults will be deducted from score as follows - 4 faults for each pole knocked down. 4 faults for a refusal or stop at a Show Jump. 8 faults for a second refusal. Elimination for the third refusal or stop at the same fence. Eliminated riders will be encouraged to complete the course as long as safety is not an issue. Highest score wins.
