Showjumping is a sport in which horse and rider combinations most typically follow a set course of jumps leaving them all intact, often in the fastest possible time against the clock.
Showjumping competitions take place for riders of all ages and abilities, from ‘clear round’ competitions over tiny fences for beginners, up to Olympic level competitions over fences up to 1.60m high.
The sport is overseen in the UK by British Showjumping, although there are also local ‘unaffiliated’ competitions that also take place around the country.
