This year’s competition, the exciting Carriage Driving Obstathon, will consist of a course of ten cones and two marathon obstacles, all numbered and drivers will be required to navigate the course in number sequence. The course will be built so a fast pace can be maintained on the course to show agility and sure footedness of the ponies and horses and skill of the drivers. Penalty points are converted to seconds and added to the time taken on the course. Knocking a ball off a cone, putting a groom down, rolling a carriage over will incur penalties. The competitor with the lowest score will be the winner of the competition. The competition will consist of single ponies and horses, pairs of ponies and horses.
