Rules

We have summarized the rules of the classes on this page. We comply with SKHH Ry’s rules: show jumping, dressage and shows.
In the judging, the goal is impartial and fair competition.

Common rules

  • The entrance door must be closed so that outsiders cannot access the event.
  • Only light-soled shoes may be worn at the venue
  • There are trash cans marked on the map at the venue where you can leave your trash
  • The premises of the event must not be vandalized
  • During the performances, the judges must have peace, but we are happy to answer questions during breaks or between performances
  • Free Riding is for visitors and competitors who are not competing in the current class.

Warm-up rules

  • Only competitors starting in the current class may ride in the warm-up arena
  • Arrive for the warm-up 5-10 minutes before your own start, so that there is no traffic jam
  • Competitors must consider other competitors and dodge if necessary
  • The height of the fences should be kept to max. in class height and not to be moved at all

Dressage rules

The competitor performs the required movements given in advance to the rhythm of the music or the program. Each required movement/part is scored with numbers 0-10, after which the points are added up and converted into percentages. The contestant with the highest percentage wins. The program is ridden on arena A (21 x 7m). The judge sits at the letter C.

Notes in the equipment:

  • Wear light-soled shoes
  • The bridle must have two reins, which must not come from the same point: for example, you cannot put two reins in one bit, unless the bit has two different rings. So if the rider so wishes, the bridle can be bitless, as long as the aforementioned condition is met.

Music

  • Music duration max. 3 min. 30 sec.
  • Return of the music to 13.9.2023 info@ecpcrb.fi at the latest. The music should be sent in such a way that it can be downloaded as a file.

Class 5. 100 cm Indoor Masters AM5

The competitor completes a predetermined basic obstacle course aiming for a clean (i.e. error-free) performance. When everyone has ridden the basic course, those without faults continue to jump-off.
