Class Specifications & Eligibility

The intent of this class is to provide the Novice rider who competes in the 2’6” hunter/jumper/equitation and pony hunter divisions with the same derby riding experience as those offered at the international and national levels. We define the Novice rider as one who competes in the Pre-Children’s/Adult Hunter and Equitation Division(s), the Progressive Jumper Division or the Small/Medium/Large Pony Hunter Division. This rider cannot have previously shown in a Division or Class with a fence height which is higher than 2’6” with the exception of large ponies. Professionals are not allowed to participate. Adults may not ride ponies unless they have competed on them in Progressive Rider Jumper Division or the Pre-Adult Hunter/Equitation Division(s). Horse, Rider & Owner must be PSJ member.

Course to be set on the 12’ stride. No in and out. Two round format with the first round to be typical hunter classic course and the second round to include “handy” type questions. Points to be tabulated by money won. All money earners will be invited to the finals in October at Highfields.
