Horse jumping as a competition is held over a course of jumping obstacles, including verticals, spreads, and double and triple combinations, usually with many turns and changes of direction. The intent is for the rider to jump his/her horse cleanly over a set course within an allotted time. Jumping faults are incurred for knockdowns and blatant disobedience, such as refusals (when the horse stops before a fence or “runs out”). Time faults are assessed for exceeding the time allowance. Basically the rider/horse, that completes the course with the lowest number of faults, wins.
