• What is the 30cm rule?

    Any combination of horse and rider cannot compete in a jumping class at an NSEA competition, except hors concors, where the height is 30cm lower than that at which they have previously competed, (1st round height) in any competition (not just NSEA competitions). This restriction does not apply to Open or Advanced Open classes. Therefore, Horse/Rider combinations jumping 1.30m or over may compete in NSEA Open or Advanced Open classes.

  • How many heights can a horse/ rider combination compete at at any one event?

    3 in total

    2 heights as a team member and a third height as an individual

    or

    1 height as a team member and 2 heights as an individual

    or

    3 heights as an individual.

  • Can a team rider ride twice in a team on two different ponies?

    Yes in two different teams, but they may not ride twice in the same team.
