World Cup Relay
A relay competition with team’s driving around a World Cup Course. There is an optimum time – too slow or too fast incurs penalties as does dislodging a ball or element. The team with the least penalties wins.
How the relay works:
The first driver crosses the start and collects a flag, then drives the course and returns the flag. Once the first driver is through the finish, the second driver starts and collects the flag and returns the flag before driving through the finish.
Picking your relay team mate:
You just enter! The organisers will pair up the drivers – typically a novice with an open driver, or an inexperienced with an experienced horse or pony. Remember this is an optimum time event – being fast is not the deciding factor.
- The wearing of hard hats & back protectors is mandatory for this event
- The venue, a working stud, requires that all visiting horses, ponies and donkeys must have had a flu vaccination within the last 12 months and no less than 7 days before the event. Please maintain good bio-security as recommended by BEF and do not approach the resident horses.
- Passports with vaccination details should be presented when collecting numbers from the secretary
