Riders jump two rounds. All rounds are timed; the second round time is used to determine minor placings when faults cannot do this. If there is equality for first place after the second round then there will be a jump off against the clock. The best three scores in each round will count for the total score.

Style Jumping is for both senior and junior riders. It is open to teams of four riders and to individuals. Each team consists of two riders jumping a 75cm course and two riders jumping an 85cm course. Individuals may choose the height at which they jump. Riders jump one round and are judged on the style of their riding. Riders must salute the judge when entering the arena, and then canter a figure of eight until the signal to start is given; during this time, they will be judged for style on the flat.

When jumping, the rider is judged on how they ride the whole course, particular attention being given to how they ride the turns and present the horse at a fence. The rider needs to show balanced approaches to the fences and be able to maintain a good forward canter in a rhythm. The position of the rider at take-off, in the air, on landing and in the following strides is assessed along with the correct judgement of pace. It is assumed that the rider is aware of the correct leading leg and is able to change it if needed (a flying change correctly and quietly done is acceptable as is a simple change through trot).
