In 2019, the FEI lessened the influence of show jumping by changing the time penalties to 0.4 penalties for every one second over the time rather than the one penalty for each second over as has been standard. The USEF then followed suit with a rule change making the new scoring standard for all USEA and FEI events.

Join preeminent show jumping course designer, Marc Donovan, as well as top eventer and grand prix show jumper, Doug Payne, as they discuss the show jumping changes from their perspectives.
