Para News and Updates


With continued support shown for the development and inclusion of Para Jumping competition, British Showjumping are pleased to announce the launch of a newly established Para Jumping League. This exciting new League will allow registered Para riders to compete within specific Graded categories of either I (70cm), I Junior (60cm), II (80cm), II Junior (70cm), III (90cm), III Junior (80cm), IV (70cm) or IV Junior (60cm).

All Para classes are judged under Club rules but are open to both Club and National registered Para riders.  A rider may only compete in their graded height unless they formally request approval in writing to British Showjumping that they wish to jump up a grade; should a rider request to jump up a grade they must continue to do so for all Para competitions outlined for the remainder of the league period.

Selected show venues have already started committing themselves to the inclusion and development of Para Jumping with most regions having booked British Showjumping – Para classes in their competition calendar for 2017.

Para classes confirmed for 2017 are as follows:

SCOPE,  Shropshire, 22nd-23rd August

A league table underpins each of the Graded categories with an objective of being awarded Graded winner at the end of each league period.  Points will be allocated to the British Showjumping Para Jumping horse/rider combination league at Para competitions held from April 1st- September 30th 2017.


1st = 12, 2nd = 10, 3rd = 8, 4th = 6, 5th = 4, 6th = 3.
