Which Show-jumping class is the most exciting competition to watch?
Each competition is exciting. The Knock Out competition is lots of fun to watch as SA’s top riders knock seconds off each others round. The Fancy Dress Cable stitch is also worthwhile seeing as the riders will display their very creative costumes!
The Masters is a competition not-to-be-missed as each rider who jumps a clear round gets to nominate to raise an individual fence. This gets very exciting as jumps go higher. The Indoor Grand Prix of South Africa will be the highlight of the show.
