Old Dominion Hounds Jump Derby at Elysian Hills


Hill Toppers. There is a division for you as well. Same track as "over fences" but you'll be going over poles on the ground.

Team Competition offered as well. Teams of 3 or 4 riders will compete around the track as individuals. Scores for each individual ride will be averaged and Team Awards will be presented. Teams will be registered the day of the Jump Derby at the check in stand.

Due to the need for assigned ride times, there will be no "day of" entries. Please enter prior to the closing date to avoid late fee.
Old Dominion Hounds Jump Derby at Elysian Hills is a combination of stadium jumping and cross country on excellent, well established turf. Riders begin with a short stadium course and continue directly to a cross country course. The cross country will include water obstacles, ditches and banks (beginner novice and higher) and a variety of natural, solid obstacles. Riders will then continue on to the final stadium course.
Stadium courses are in the same field as the cross country course. Riders will flow from stadium directly to cross country and then directly to the final stadium course. Riders are placed on lowest number of penalties (4 pts for each rail or refusal) and closest to optimum time without going over.

Levels include:
Hill Toppers (over poles on the ground)
Introductory (18")
Elementary (2 ft)
Beginner Novice (2 ft 7")
Novice (2 ft 11")
Training (3 ft 3")

We will begin with lowest level (Hill Topper) and move up to higher levels (Training level will be run last). Riders may "add in" a second round at original level ($25). Riders may also ride at higher level on same horse ($50).
This is a great way to school your green horse or green rider over cross country and stadium jumps. Very easy going atmosphere. Lot's of fun and a great day of schooling. Perfect activity for Fox Hunters looking for jumps to school in the off season!!

*****Please plan to walk your course prior to riding. You must walk the course on foot. Allow approximately 30 minutes to walk your course. Courses can be walked any time the day of the Jump Derby. *****
