    Well, quite. Jumping big fences is not a big deal for children or ponies. But then I think the longer children stay on ponies the better - I don't understand the rush to get 12/13 year olds jumping...

    That's not really correct though.

    Not really, it is the pony that's being judged (on manners, way of going and conformation). Other than wearing a hat the handlers don't have to get all dressed up - just makes for a nicer overall...

    Judges only ride on the flat.
    The format of the classes is:

    Each horse jumps a round over fences.

    Then all the horses enter the ring and are asked to walk, trot and canter as a group.

    I'm pretty sure the age limits for the pony (junior) classes are 12,14 and 16, but anyone can ride a pony in the Senior classes if they want to.
