Katie Roebuck interviews JAS BE100 winner Izzy Hall about the technical course, how she found the course and her horse.
What is JAS?
Keep up the momentum and stay motivated during the winter months with Baileys Horse Feeds sponsored Jumping and Style (JAS) and Jump Training, British Eventing’s fantastic pre-season competitions open to both members and non-members of British Eventing.
Both established eventers and grassroots riders alike use this indoor cross country and show jumping ‘arena’ event to get their competitive edge before the season starts.
This series, often known as JAS, is an indoor arena eventing experience with a combination of show jumps and cross country fences.
What are the JAS classes?
- BE90 – open to Grade 4 horses and riders who not competed at Advanced level, max fence height 90cm
- BE90 Open – open to all Grade horses, max fence height 100cm
- BE100 – open to Grade 4 horses, max fence height 100cm
- BE100 Open – open to all Grade horses, max fence height 1.10m
- Novice – open to Grade 3 and 4 horses, max fence height 1.15m
- Open Novice – open to all Grade horses, max fence height 1.15m. The maximum height of fences for the Championships will be 1.20m
You and your horse will be judged on style as well as technique and jumping penalties; the style mark is then converted to penalty points and added to any cross country or jumping penalties for the final score and the lowest score wins.
The series runs from January through to the Series Championship at the end of February.
