Welcome Jumpers

Derby Double

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.  Whilst this year we will be limiting the event to a double - Sowjumping and the Derby itself, it still promises to be a great day.

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.

Nominations Extended till Monday Night 7th November
