Showjump penalties

The official results for the combined training comp have finally been put up, and im rather confused with my score.
For the jumping i got 20 penalties. We had 2 refusals and one pole knocked down. I looked up the scoring on the EA website and i should have only got 16 penalties right? (on the day they had a scoring sheet and that said i should have gotten 12 )
So.. anyone have any ideas why its 20? Even though it was a training day it was still a comp and it brought my overall score down so much..

Im thinking maybe time penalties? (bear in mind i know practically nothing about jumping) They said it was "optimum time"...

Yup, would have been time penalties I would guess.

Optimum time means they measure the distance, and then have a set speed (How big were you jumping) for a relatively small course it's usually around 350mm (Metres per minute). So that then gives you the time.

That time is the optimum time that you will aim for - usually on an average sized horse it is a nice, rythmic, controlled canter. They usually give you ten or twenty seconds either side of the optimum time, and if you are outside this bracket, then you get penalties, wether it be faster or slower.

It was 60cm.
I didnt think he was that slow, while i was riding it felt as if he was a little rushed, though with those 2 refusals it would have taken a fair bit of time up i suppose.

Yep, that would have got you - Refusals take up a lot of time. The time is calculated on the round being ridden smoothly, on the correct lines, with no faults.

Here in the states you either go under or hit optimum time. No "bracket". If you go over optimum, penalties, under speed fault, penalties. Also, 350MPM is usually a 60cm XC course, and stadium would usually be at 275 for that high jumping. Then it bumps up to 375MPM for XC on a novice (2'11" here) course. And then it keeps going up to around 650MPM at most advanced competitions.
