Every effort will be made to keep the time between dressage and the jumping phases as short as possible, but please note that we cannot start any jumping until all of dressage is concluded due to logistical restrictions, and this sometimes requires one or two divisions to have a longer break between these two phases.  Competitors will jump their show jumping first and may wear cross-country attire.  There will be about 20-25 minutes in between riders' show jumping rounds and cross-country start times.
