Help with show jumping please
 
I'm finding it hard to find information on show jumping. I want to get into it but I have no idea what classes there are. Is there a guide on show jumping somewhere where I can get some info from? I have no idea like what classes to do or anything.

There is sooo much info out there on fence types, classes, divisions, levels, entry's, nomination fees , c,b,a and aa shows... What are you doing now? That might help narrow it down . But in a nutshell : jump off courses: go around a course of 8-11 jumps and go under the time allowed and keep all the jumps up. Continue to your jump off of a few jumps of the course you jut did and 1 or2 new ones. A speed class can either be hitting rails as 4 faults or time added. You do these courses as clean as possible and be fast.

Hitting a rail is always 4 faults, you get time faults for going over the time allowed. You can to always put in a clean round. Hope that helps... That's very basic
