There seems to have been a bit of confusion over the Winter League Showjumping results, the main reason being that Horsemonkey defaults to a faster time if the total faults from the two rounds are equal. Below is the explanation of how the scoring works.

Please note EFRA runs to BRC rules in respect of permitted tack and riders dress including the new whip, spur rules and scoring


Starter and Nursery classes

Jump 1 round then then immediately (after catching breath) jump the jump-off round which will have a generous optimum time. Competitor nearest & below optimum time is placed above a rider with slower than optimum time. See below on how scoring works

 Novice/Intermediate/open classes

Jump 1 round then immediately (after catching breath) jump the jump-off round against the clock. Also see below for how the scoring works.

A rider who goes clear in the first round, then accrues four faults in the jump-off will be placed above a rider who accrued four faults in the first round, regardless of times or faults recorded in the jump-off.


Knocking down any part of an obstacle including the wing..........4 faults

First disobedience on the whole course......................................4 faults

Second disobedience on the whole course..................................8 faults

Third disobedience on the whole course.....................................Elimination

Fall of horse on the whole course...............................................Elimination

Fall of rider on the whole course.................................................Elimination
