Derby Treble

The Derby Treble is the brainchild of Mr Ron Ford, who wanted to offer the riders in Zone one the opportunity to have a fun day with varous aspects of Jumping - Showjumping,and Cross-Country.  It is also a great way to introduce both horse and riders to the wonderful world of Cross Country & Showjumping.

Over the years it has proven to be one of the most popular events on the Zone Calendar.

The smile on the faces of the competitors is a testament to the FUN nature of the event.

    This is a competition over three phases. In order to be eligible for the overall class prizes,

    Riders must participate in each of the three phases. Points (1-10) will be awarded for each phase and accumulated to achieve an overall class champion.

    Each phase of the competition will be judged in accordance with PCAQ rules, however the organizing committee has in some instances adapted those rules to facilitate the safe operation of the overall event.

  • Phase 1 - Jumping AM7

    Riders will enter the ring, salute the Equitation Judge and proceed as per a normal Jumping Equitation round. Judging will be per the PCAQ rules for Equitation. Points 1-10 will be awarded for Equitation, based on rider rankings at the conclusion of the class.

  • Phase 2 - Jumping Scurry

    This competition takes place over medium sized obstacles and is a timed competition judged under Table C.

    First and second disobediences are penalised by the time lost by the competitor. The third disobedience incurs elimination.
    Should a competitor jump an obstacle in the wrong order he will be eliminated.

    (Scurry is like an A2 but judged under Table C).
    In the event of an obstacle being knocked down when refusing, the time correction will be added to the time taken to complete the course.

  • Phase 3 - Derby
