Question about jumpoffs

If you make the jumpoff round, does the clock start ticking as soon as they ring the bell or when you jump the first fence?

There is a start line and a finish line, at bigger shows they are little sensor things that will start/stop the clock automatically when you cross between them. Are you talking about a course with a jump off or a power and speed class ? Your jumper round will get timed as well as the jump off round. In a power and speed class there will be sensors part way through the course when the clock will start.

I really don't know! It's just an eventing schooling show where each class is independent. Last year after jumping a clear round, I had to jump an additional 4 fences. They rang a bell and off we went. I just don't know if I wasted time getting to the first fence. I'm pretty new to this showing stuff.

It's from when you go over the first jump since the first jump is not necessarily through the start flags to go over number 1. You could be starting over jump 4 so they will clock you from over the first jump to the last. You usually finish over the last jump so you go through the finish flags.

I have never heard of that Amir !

You have 45 seconds to pass the start line once they ring the bell.

The clock starts ticking as soon as you go through the start line. A lot of times it's the first jump, sometimes it's not. So they could ring the bell, and you can walk around for 45 seconds and get your head together..or just canter off to the first jump.

It starts as soon as you go through the start line. They will whistle or ring a bell, but the time doesn't start til you actually cross the line. Make sure you know where it is! It's sometimes fairly easy to miss.

I wasn't even aware that Jump Off's in Eventing even existed. Regardless if 2,3,4,5 riders finished their Stadium Round in 2 minutes, a jump off will not occur. *scratches head*

They go by all 3 phases to determin who takes 1st, 2nd, 3rd - you get the point. I have never seen nor heard of a jump off ever occuring in the eventing world.


In Show Jumping - *Hunter/Jumper* yeah...they do jump off's. And I was always under the impression that your time starts when you cross the start flags or start line.

MIE, she might mean a schooling jumper show to practice for eventing. Around here there are a lot of eventing farms that hold not only combined tests, but dressage & jumper shows. All for practice before horsetrials. :)

And in that case, since it isn't judged based on your performance in multiple phases, you have to have timed jumpoffs to determine who gets what place.

Well that's the way they've run it at every jumping comp I've done in Australia. They have different kinds of jumping rounds as well so one table A you'll do your jump off straight after a clear round in ideal time and then another table A you do it after everyone else has finished the first round and if you're called back.
It gets really confusing sometimes, I just ask the ring stewards before I go in lol.
