o Teams will compete in drawn order, two teams at a time and jump separate identical courses.
o The team members must hand a hunting whip to the next member of the team. If the whip is dropped, the competitor who is handing it over must dismount pick up the whip and may, from the ground, give it to the next competitor. The lash may be taped up but should be no longer than the solid length of the whip.
o If a team member fails to complete the course either through a fall or a horse having three refusals, the following member must complete the round from the point of retirement and then continue to jump their own round. A team member may not complete the previous member’s round until they have had three refusals on the course or have fallen.
o Time penalties of five seconds will be added for each fence down.
o Refusals and errors of course will increase the time taken to complete the course.
o Teams must consist of four riders and four horses/ponies.
o In the event of a serious accident to either horse or rider the opposing team member will complete their round and the clocks then stopped for both teams. The next competitors will not be allowed to start the course until the injured rider/horse has left the arena. The competition will be restarted with the next rider of the team involved in the incident starting at the fence where the incident happened and the opposing team from the start line.
o Hunts can enter more than one team.
o It is a condition of entry that each team entered will provide one helper for the duration of the class. Details are to be provided on the entry form, or the entry will not be accepted.
