 We are cancelling the 3 phase this weekend. So what we will be offering instead is a derby and games. Entries open till Sat Morning.
To better plan ahead please send me email entries.
All checks for July 2nd 3 phase schooling show will be torn up and disposed of.

How a derby works is that you do your stadium course and immediately go out onto your cross country. You will be judged on time and
faults. The rider closest to the optimum time without going over that has the least amount of penalties wins. Optimum time for each level is
calculated using the Meters per Minute posted on our entry form.

The cost of the Derby is $40 for the first round and $20 for each additional round.

If you wish to do stadium only the cost is $15 and will be judged as a jumper round.
