Top Score Points League 2017
If you are competing in our Top Score classes during 2017 you will be entered into our league finishing in June. There are sashes, prizes and rosettes available to the top three competitors.

Class Six Top Score rules

  • Each fence will have a points value according to its difficulty. You score the number of points allocated to each jump if you jump clear. No points are scored for a knockdown.
  • Time will start when the competitor crosses the start line in either direction and will end when they cross the finish line in either direction
  • Time allowed is 45 seconds
  • The bell is rung once the time is reached. The competitor then has to stop jumping and cross the finish line for the time to be recorded.
  • The competitor jumps whatever obstacles they choose and can jump the jumps in either direction
  • If a jump is knocked down it is not rebuilt. If you jump a knocked down obstacle no points are scored.
  • You can jump each jump a maximum of TWO times. Any further jumping of the same obstacle results in no more points being scored
  • The Joker fence is worth 10 points and can be jumped a maximum of two times. If you have a knock down then 10 points is deducted from your score.
  • Disobediences (refusals and run outs) are not penalised as they reduce the time available to score points. 55cm fences worth 2 points, 65cm fences worth 4 points, 75cm fences worth 6 points and the Joker fence worth 10 points. If knocked down minus 10 points
  • THE HIGHEST POINT SCORE WINS. If a tie then the time taken is the decider
