NEWS!

My name is Andrew Stennett and my passion is horses. Horses make a very special contribution to the lives of many people all over the UK. Sadly not every horse has the opportunity these noble animals deserve . The British Horse Welfare department remit is to help care and education to improve the health and welfare of horses. I will be taking part in the BHS challenge ride in Rajasthan from Sept 23rd 2017 to 4th October 2017 in aim to raise £5,000 for their work. Can you help me with challenge?

Top Score Points League 2017

If you are competing in our Top Score classes during 2017 you will be entered into our league finishing in June

There are sashes, prizes and rosettes available to the top three competitors.

Class Six Top Score rules

Each fence will have a points value according to its difficulty. You score the number of points allocated to each jump if you jump clear. No points are scored for a knockdown

Time will start when the competitor crosses the start line in either direction and will end when they cross the finish line in either direction

Time allowed is 45 seconds

The bell is rung once the time is reached. The competitor then has to stop jumping and cross the finish line for the time to be recorded.

The competitor jumps whatever obstacles they choose and can jump the jumps in either direction

If a jump is knocked down it is not rebuilt. If you jump a knocked down obstacle no points are scored

You can jump each jump a maximum of TWO times. Any further jumping of the same obstacle results in no more points being scored

The Joker fence is worth 10 points and can be jumped a maximum of two times. If you have a knock down then 10 points is deducted from your score.

Disobediences (refusals and run outs) are not penalised as they reduce the time available to score points

55cm fences worth 2 points

65cm fences worth 4 points

75cm fences worth 6 points

Joker fence worth 10 points. If knocked down minus 10 points

THE HIGHEST POINT SCORE WINS. If a tie then the time taken is the decider
