Here are some of our FAQ:
Q: How does the Ride 'n' Bike work?
A: First part of the course will be on horse back over single fences. Faults will be counted as per usual.
Then competitors will hop onto a bicycle in a designated area and complete an obstacle course on the bike. A mistake at an obstacle will count as 4 faults.
Fastest round with the least amount of faults wins
Time starts when the horse rides through the start timers and finishes when the bicycle rides through the finish timers.
Limited to 15 entries. We will have a briefing on the rules prior to event, at the course walk.
Q: How do the Friday classes run? Is it like the schooling days?
A: Our LCT Fridays will run just like the Saturday and Sunday show days, but will not be judged. We would like to separate the schooling days from the LCT events.
Q: How are the heights set on course?
A: Each height is set exactly how it is advertised. For example the 1.00m is set at exactly 1.00m throughout the course with the first couple of jumps being a little lower to start off with.
Q: What is the dress code for the Local Champions Tour?
A: For Friday we require informal show attire and for Saturday and Sunday formal show attire.
Q: Are there any other fees than the entry fees?
A: No, we do not have ship in fees, we do not have grounds fee, we do not have office fees, we do not have non showing fees, we do not have nomination fees. The only extra is a stall or RV spot.
Q: Will the Local Champions Tour be judged?
A: Yes, the lower classes will be judged on Optimum Time. The others will have a red Speed course, and a black Clear Round/Jump-Off format. Only the black courses will have prizes.
Q: Is the Local Champions Tour USEF rated?
A: No. We are not affiliated with any governing body at this time.
Q: Are there any age restrictions on your classes?
A: Not at this time.
Q: How is it different to Schooling Days?
A: Schooling Days are neither judged nor placed. They are solely to practice in a show-like environment. Those rounds are not timed, and there are no eliminations, and you can jump as many rounds as you need to school.
LCT is a horse show with the same rules we know from rated jumper shows with regards to penalties, eliminations, and placings.
Q: What do you mean when you say bring your own reusable show numbers?
A: This LINK will show you what we mean. These numbers are fantastic as they can be used for every LCT show.

A: We will start at 0.50m and go up in 10cm increments until 1.20m.
