Following the success of our first Arena Eventing competition, East Cheshire Branch have decided to repeat the experience for 2020, so, if you already enjoy or would like to try ARENA EVENTING, please make a note in your diary that we will be holding an
ARENA EVENTING COMPETITION at
KELSALL HILL EQUESTRIAN CENTRE on
SUNDAY the 23rd FEBRUARY 2020
The format and rules will be as the previous competition, viz:
- Pony Club (PC) Arena Eventing is a two-phase competition run at PC70, PC80, PC 90 & PC100 level.
- Competitors will jump a course of show jumps immediately followed by cross-country fences* and will finish with a last fence as a show jump, the Joker fence. The Joker fence will be approximately 5cm (PC70) or 10cm (PC80,90 & 100) higher than the rest of the course and if knocked down will incur 6 penalties.
- At PC70 the Joker fence maybe omitted incurring additional penalties.
- The show jumping phase will not be timed but the cross-country phase will be timed to include the Joker fence. All competitors will proceed to the cross-country phase unless previously eliminated.
- The winner of each class will be the rider with the least number of faults over the whole course. In the event of a tie, the rider(s) with fastest time over phase two will take precedence.
Further information, including rules and entry details, will be in the schedule which will be published nearer the date on the EC and Area 5 websites.
*Please note the XC fences will be SOLID but NOT FIXED to the surface.
