The aim of this Competition is to give the less experienced Jumping riders who, under normal circumstances, cannot take part in international Jumping competitions and live in the more remote countries, the opportunity to compete internationally without having to leave their own country.
The Competition is currently divided into ten geographical Zones. It offers the following categories of one age group (15 yrs and older for Categories A and B, 14 yrs and older for Category C):
• Category A : 1.20-1.30 m
• Category B : 1.10-1.20 m
• Category C: 1.00-1.10 m

Development of the Sport
