Are you talking like steeplechase? I've never run in one myself, the closest I got was xc, but I know there are tons of resources on the internet, I'm sure if you just google it, something will come up that will surely be able to help you. Sorry, I know it's not much help,hope you find the info you are looking for.

The devils dyke is in show jumping, There's one at Spruce Meadows. Now I'll try to remember what it looks like.. I haven't seen a show in a while.. Usually its a jump then when you get over the jump its raised ground another jump then a third jump and you go back to level ground? I think that's what it looks like.. I at least know its three jumps close together.

A devils dyke is a jump and then another jump down into water followed by a jump out of water I thought? I could be totally wrong tho haha

A derby is like a small cross country course with both solid and knockable jumps in an arena ii normally has a water jump to. It requires great control as some jumps are very flimsy it also is usually timed and based on overall look so you have to look nice and in control overall clearing jumps easily and clean. Your horse should look like it can jump a hunter track cleanly in an arena space.
It will also have a showing session after to ensure your horse is a correct mover and you can control him. THere is a confirmation check as well.
