Area 5 Winter League Rules (as amended)


  1. For clarification, Rule 6.2 of the Area 5 Winter League rules  (A horse or pony may only be ridden in one class at any one competition and by a single rider) does NOT apply to Class 4 (The Dengie Qualifier) or Class 6 (Advanced) since neither form part of the Area 5 WL competition – see Rule 7.4.
  2. In the first round the whole team will jump in succession. In the second round the team members will jump one at a time, one from each team, in the order they jumped in the first round sequentially – rule 7.7 & 7.9.2.
  3. Both Class 4 and Class 6 will be Two-phase – first phase 7 to 9 obstacles not against the clock with a time allowed; clear rounds continue straight  onto the second phase without a bell being rung. Second phase 4 to 6 obstacles and timed. Competitors placed on faults and time.
  4. The competition will take place on a prepared surface.
