Description of MDHT XDerby courses: All rings will have cross country obstacles you would find on a typical competition course. The objective is to establish a rhythm over solid jumps in reliable consistent footing. Optimum times will be posted.
XDerby Refunds: Through late closing day - refund less a $10 office fee. After late closing - no refunds, credits or transfers. If there is a wait list, full refunds will be issued to any scratch whose spot can be filled off the wait list.
Description of MDHT Cross XDerby courses: All rings will have cross country obstacles you would find on a typical competition course with show jump obstacles mixed in. The objective is to establish a rhythm over solid jumps in reliable consistent footing. Optimum times will be posted on day of XDerby. Logs/xrails through Modified. Schooling session before each division to school over the competition jumps beforehand. We will be starting with Logs/xrails and moving up so as to allow competitors to "move up" if desired. $105/round (includes schooling session) $35 for Logs/xrails (March only)
*The XDerby speeds are slightly higher than regular SJ to incorporate a better flow over the cross country jumps. ** Subject to change
The MDHT XDerby will follow USEF rules for Cross Country dress and tack. All Riders must wear ASTM/SEI approved helmet, protective vests, and medical armband. Willful delay will be enforced. Competitors may enter more than one level but would be expected not to enter their horses less than one level below which they are currently competing. No coaching during competition, but highly encouraged in our schooling sessions.
There will be an audible signal to start. Fall of horse or rider during jumping phase is immediate elimination and you must leave the course.
Please note - unsportsmanlike conduct directed towards anyone at any time will result in removal from the competition and show grounds. This applies to competitors, parents/guardians, and coaches.
In the interest of horse and rider welfare and safety, the weather forecast will be taken into account at or after the closing date. A sufficiently unfavorable forecast will cancel the event. If Loch Moy Farm cancels the event, a full refund will be given through Compete Easy.
The top 3 riders with the least accumulated points will win special prizes at the end of the series (December 3-4, January 7, March 18-19).
The Maryland Horse Trials will be using this new system for online entries.
