Elysian Hills Jump Derby 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.
Elementary (2 ft)
Beginner Novice (2 ft 7")
Novice (2 ft 11")
Training (3 ft 3")
We will begin with lowest level (Introductory) 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!!
