Certificate of Performance over Showjumps (Certificate B)

Persons suitable to sign this certificate:

  • BHSI or above

  • Showjumping or event rider who has ridden at CSI or CCI

Notes for the Judge*

The horse you are being asked to examine has already been carefully selected to go into the relevant Stud Book; the next stage is Performance Testing. This Certificate, which you are invited to complete if satisfied that the horse has attained the required standards, will together with others covering flat work and cross country qualify the horse for the Performance Test final day or days.


You should expect the horse to show ability and willingness and freedom over a course of showjumps to a maximum height of 1067mm (3ft 6ins) (914mm or 3ft for horses 15hh or under, 835mm or 2ft 9ins for horses 13hh or under) and similar in layout to BSJA Newcomers. Please remember it is the horse we are interested in - obvious rider errors should be ignored and even knock-downs may be irrelevant if you are satisfied that the horse has attained a reasonable standard of training. If you have any problems please discuss them freely with the owner, who will genuinely wish to receive your comments on the state of development of their horse. Do not feel obliged to sign this certificate on your first viewing of the horse. If you believe that the horse would benefit from further training and/or work please tell the owner so. Signing off an insufficiently prepared horse may lead to serious problems at the Final Day(s).
