    The bell tells you that you are allowed to start the round. You have to be crossing the start line before the time runs out, or you get disqualified. The start line can be several strides away from a jump, or just before, depending on the class and the room available.

    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.
    Ah! That makes sense - thanks for clarifying.

    But with the combined tests - would there still be a jump off, since you are being judged on the 2 phases?

    There isn't a jump off for a combined test jumping round. It's like an event without the cross country score. So it's based solely on your dressage and if you go clear in jumping.

    ^ That's what I thought.

    It also depends on the type of comp it is. Every year I go to a comp that has a dressage test and two jumping rounds that are in a sand arena, but half the jumps are stadium and half are xc jumps. Even if you fall off or get E there is a set number of penalty points so you can technically still place. It has a lot of different rules/ideas etc. but it is made for eventers or people who want to get into eventing. Maybe this is something like that.

    ^That sounds like a Short Course - but the rules you described sound very different from anything I've ever heard. I don't think you should still technically place if you get eliminated......or fall off.

    I think if a show is preparing people for Eventing, by doing "knock off events" - they should still follow the rules, to prepare those newcomers as to the rules, and what to expect when they really do event.

    Well its not an event at all, I forget what they call it. But you do two rounds in the same arena with all the same jumps, half sj, half xc. But its a sand arena with a built in hill on it. You get like 300 penalty pts for falling off so if you place its going to be 8th. A lot of people who go there like it because they can school xc fences in an inclosed arena and flat ground. Its actually a pretty cool show because its not the backyardy type of schooling show, its at a really great/classy facility with great jumps. Its not meant to be a mock event or mini event by any means.
