Class Specs

$500 Gambler’s Choice Jumper Class (Mid Oct)

Open to all riders. Gamblers choice: Each jump will be given a point value and every time a horse clears a jump they receive the points assigned to that fence. Points will only be awarded once for jumping a jump – unless you are taking the same jump from a different direction. (For example, if you take the same jump repeatedly you will only get points for the first time you jumped that fence. You may jump it a second time and be awarded points IF going in the opposite direction.) Riders may take any path they choose and jump the jumps in any order the choose. There will be a time limit of 90 seconds and the horse and rider combination who has the most points at the end of their time will be the winner.

$1500 Sedgefield Hunter Derby

The “Hunt and Go” format was only introduced several years ago as a way to shorten the original derby format while still offering a classic and a handy round. Instead of all riders competing through the classic and then returning at a later time for a handy, the course is designed as half classic and half handy. Riders are therefore able to highlight their horse’s strengths in both formats. We will run this derby at 2’6”, 2’9”, 3’, and 3’3” Each entrant will receive a numerical score for the classic round and a separate numerical score for the handy round. All horses will complete the handy round unless they have a major fault such as a refusal, pole down, or a fall. The total of the two rounds will be the final score.

Entry Fee: $100

Prize money: $450, $300, $225, $150, $120, $100, $80, $75
