Six Bar?

I was watching British show jumping the other day and they were talking about a type of competition called six bar. Basically there are six fences in a row and each one is higher than the last. I think it works like puissance except that there are always 6 fences. Has anyone ever seen this before?

Yeah. I've seen it before. I went to a local show (with my schools Cattle Show Team and to be a ring steward for the horses) and they were doing six bar. I've done one, It was small as and it's actually when I first fell off. It's quite demanding.

Just go on youtube and look it up. There will be tonnes of videos!

your the best thing thats ever been mine

I think Spruce Meadows holds a 6-Bar competition every year, or at least use to. It aired on CBC, or highlites of it were aired along with shoing that days competition.

All the time here in Aus. I'ts a knockout competition - They keep raising the jumps every round, if you knock a rail you are eliminated, winner is the last clear run through.

It's great fun :]

It is still part of their competition and takes an extraordinary horse to go through without any knockdowns.

Most of the time the horse go through the 6 fences at least 4 times before a winner is declared.
