Sword, Lance, Revolver
The ultimate competition that brings all the skills together!
Riders use swords to attack dummies between jumps, then use a revolver firing .38 (9mm) blanks to burst balloons in mid air over jumps and on the ground.
The lance is then used on the final element, to collect two rings from a pair of gallows and a peg form the ground.
For juniors, young horses and where firearms are impractical, the revolver can be replaced with a pricker.
