                                 What is Show Jumping?



Overview

The equestrian sport is unique in its beauty
and grace. The combination of rider and
horse - of concentration and power -
provides emotion and excitement that no
other sport offers. Woman is equal to man
in the execution. The horse has the
muscles; the rider has the control. The
Olympic sport of Grand Prix Show
Jumping is best described as a cross
between the excitement of Thoroughbred
racing and the sheer daring of the downhill
slalom. The jumpers hit racehorse speeds
between fences up to 6’ in height and better that 5’ deep! The rules of the game are simple: jump
an obstacle course of fences set on a twisting, turning course without dropping a rail or falling off
and within the time allowed to come back for the jump-off round – the sport’s version of sudden
death overtime. In the jump off, speed and carefulness are of the essence. The horse with fastest
time and the fewest jumping faults is declared the winner. Show Jumping spans history, speaks all
languages and transcends age and gender with a contagious spirit.



It is family oriented. It instills dedication, courage, confidence and commitment. There is no
sport equal to this unity between horse and rider.



This remarkable sport has gathered rapid momentum over the past decade and has become
an immensely popular and highly visible spectator sport.

History Of Show Jumping

Show jumping is a relatively new
equestrian sport. Until the Enclosures                                                      Acts
which came into force in England in the
eighteenth century there had been no                                                        need for
a horse to jump fences as there had been                                                    none.
But with this act of parliament came new
challenges for those followers of fox                                                       hounds.
The enclosures act brought fencing and
boundaries to many parts of the country                                                     as
common ground was dispersed amongst                                                         the
wealthy landowners. This meant that                                                         those
wishing to pursue their sport now needed                                                    horses
which were capable of jumping these
obstacles.

In the early shows held in France there                                                     was a
parade of competitors who then took off                                                     across
country for the jumping. This sport was, however, not popular with spectators as they could not
watch the jumping. Soon after the introduction of these parades fences began to appear in the
arena. This became known as ‘Lepping’. Fifteen years later, ‘Lepping’ competitions were brought
to Britain and by 1900 most of the more important shows had ‘Lepping’ classes although they
rarely attracted more than 20 competitors. The ladies, riding side-saddle, had their own classes.

At this time, the principal cavalry schools of Europe at Pinerolo and Tor-di-Quinto in Italy, the
French school in Saumur and the Spanish school in Vienna preferred to use a backward seat when
jumping for safety purposes with long length stirrups. The Italian Instructor Captain Fiederico
Caprilli heavily influenced the forward seat with his ideas that the forward position would not
impede the balance of the horse negotiating obstacles. It is this latter style which is commonly used
today.

The first big show jumping class to be held in England was in the Horse of the Year Show at
Olympia in 1907. Most of the competitors were servicemen and it became clear at this competition
and in the subsequent years that there was no uniformity of rules for the sport. Judges marked on
their own opinions. Some marked according to the severity of the obstacle and others marked
according to style. Before 1907 there were no penalties for a refusal and the competitor was
sometimes asked to miss the fence to please the spectators. The first courses were built with little
imagination; many consisting of only a straight bar fence and a water jump. A meeting was
arranged in 1923 to rectify it and this led to the formation of the BSJA in 1925.




                                                                                                     3
