If a Show cancels due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, another venue can only be authorised by Regional Secretary.


Starting Times
As agreed with our sponsors all Grand Prix Legs must start on time @ 2 P.M. (per original rules). This is critical to facilitate making results available on time for maximum press coverage, also to ensure alignment with sponsor availability for the presentation ceremony.

ShowjumpingIreland wishes to strongly emphasise to Show Organisers, the need to start classes on time and to ensure they run in a timely manner without delay.  There is also a strong onus and duty on riders to co-operate by coming into the ring to compete when requested by the Judges and/or to do so.

Failure to comply with these requests may result in a Judge or Starter having to exert their authority as may be required to assist with the running of a class.  In this regard the ShowjumpingIreland also wishes to advise Judges that they have a duty to the sport to implement the rules fairly and thereby play their part in avoiding unnecessary delays.


Show Secretaries
Where Amateur classes are concerned it should be noted that these types of classes (A and AA combined) must be run as one competition and results should not be split as has occurred in some situations in previous years. The results should be recorded as one overall class to ensure that the correct allocations of Amateur rider's points are awarded. Confusion has arisen in the past whereby Amateur classes have been divided where in fact they should be combined.

Show Secretaries please note that any change to a schedule must be done 5 working days in advance of the show and can only amend / add 1 class to the schedule. The addition of a class can only be made for standalone shows not for any leagues.

A cabled feed may be taken from the official PA system, but no separate microphone to be allowed except with the express agreement of the President of the Ground Jury.  All open/background microphones should be clearly identifiable by Officials and competitors.
