View Full Version : Quick! Show jump faults question

Jun. 12, 2010, 04:24 PM
My horse had a stop on stadium and when he stopped, he chested the jump and it fell.

Is this 4 or 8 faults?

Pretty sure it's just 4 - the jump falling down was part of the stop, not because the horse failed to clear it. I'm sure someone here could point you to the appropriate section of the rulebook faster than I could locate it, though.

If the judge rang the bell and you had to wait for the jump to be re-built and had to re-jump, its a stop. If the judge didn't ring the bell and you went through the jump and kept going, its a rail.

But regardless of whether it is considered a stop or a rail, it is only 4 faults
