Jumping Events at Cricklands
Frequently Asked Questions
What are your rules?
We run under British Showjumping rules. If you are unsure of any of these, please come and speak to us in the office when you are here.
Is the standard very high?
We welcome riders of all levels. Of course, to win at our Championships shows is very difficult, but we always try to make the experience of competing as fun as possible.
What is the difference between your unaffiliated and BS affiliated shows?
In general, we use exactly the same team of judges, stewards, officials and course designers for both our affiliated and unaffiliated shows. Whilst always remaining encouraging for our riders, standards must be maintained and we achieve this by using a first class team of officials.

"This was our first visit to the David Broome Event Centre and after hearing so many good things it lived up to all expectations, fantastic arenas, great food and a good variety all reasonably priced. There was night life on both nights, music all day long not just at the arenas around the stables as well; all made for a fantastic atmosphere with lovely friendly stress free people. We came home feeling like we had been on holiday."
