Trained tip is

DON'T FALL OFF! BUT, if you do - you MUST do the Gymnast's Salute!


Have fun!

First off... good luck.
Most of the classes have been mentioned. But I figured i'd add in another type that threw me for a loop. A Chip/Touch class. You get faults for Chipping and rubbing rails. To me this sounds more like a wonky hunter class. You want optimum striding for it while being speedy. I've only seen this at two local jumper shows so hopefully it's just a local thing.

Wear the coat... there's nothing wrong with looking classy.

Oh wow Mud that is something I've never heard before!

Well, I went and we had fun, but they were doing something very "Eventing stadium" like with this show...rather than a Jump Off or fastest time for those who were tied, they did closest to the "optimum time"! So in 1 class, for example, I was tied for a clear round with like 7 others, and I was the fastest and placed 6th because I was TOO fast for their "optimum time" :) haha

Local Jumpers come up with the oddest things. Good job on going clear!

Congrats!! Glad it went well! Actually the only time I've ever seen Optimum Time (or a touch class) has been at a rated show!

Yeah jumper shows, especially for schooling shows, are different so pay attention to the tables. I've only ever done hunters and eventing. Last weekend I went to a schooling jumper show to get my greenie some experience for eventing. It was a very small show and I was just kinda expecting it to be like eventing. WRONG haha. Someone had to explain it to me. The first class was normal, like eventing, rails added to time, and that was it. The second class, if you went clean (no refusals, no rails) you went immediately to the jump off.
