Welcome Jumpers

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 various aspects of Jumping - Jumping Equitation, 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.

  • Rules of Competition

    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 Equitation

    More interest has developed in recent years in EQUITATION classes - These consist of one round over a smooth flowing course over moderate height jumps. They are judged much like dressage and points are awarded for the manner in which each jump is negotiated. This way the rider with the best style is the winner.

    These competitions are very useful for training purposes as the riders are forced to ride at their best overall.

    This must be ridden in a snaffle bit. Dressage whips and spurs are allowed.

  • Phase 2 - Jumping A2

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

  • Phase 3 - Derby

    Derby: Judging will be per the PCQ rules for show jumping under Table A and with particular reference to section 77 (page 84). A Derby is a special competition taking place over a combination of show jumping and cross country fences.

    Riders will complete a single derby round and there will not be a jump off round.

    Time penalties will be awarded at 1 penalty per 4 secs over the optimum time for the course, and riders will be allowed a 20 sec grace period before penalties are imposed for being under the optimum time for the course at the same rate. Competitors will be permitted to wear a watch.

  • Course Penalties

    1st disobedience 4 penalties, 2nd 8 penalties, 3rd elimination. Obstacle knocked while jumping 4 penalties, disobedience & knocking down obstacle 4 penalties + 4 secs. At the conclusion of the round, riders will be ranked and points 1-10 awarded.

  • Class Scoring & Placings

    At the conclusion of three rounds, riders in each class are ranked based on points accumulated.

    In the event of a tie, count back will be decided on the results from the derby, show jumping and equitation in that order.

  • Prizes

    Overall Winners:

    • Trophies 1st to  3rd place
