The “Nimmity Bell” show jumping pointscore is a competition run over 4 shows – Nimmitabel, Delegate, Dalgety and Bombala. The “Nimmity Bell” trophy is to be awarded to the horse & rider combination with the highest pointscore in open competition over 4 shows. This will be awarded at the completion of events at the Bombala Showjumping events.

1. Horses can only score in 80cm or higher, novelty events excluded, All entrants in these events will be eligible for the “Nimmity Bell Pointscore” regardless of the total amount of entries in one class.

2. A horse & rider combination can only score once at each show. This score will be their best placing from that show. If a horse fails to place in an event, it will score zero for that show. The points will be awarded as follows: 1st = 5 points, 2nd = 4 points, 3rd = 3 points, 4th = 2 points, 5th = 1 point, no placing yet eligible = 0 points. In the case of “tied” placings the points will be spilt, the same way as prizemoney.

3. Horses and rider combination must compete at all 4 shows to be eligible for the “Nimmity Bell Pointscore”. The only exception will be if an official vet / doctor’s certificate is presented to the official scorer indicating the horse/ rider’s inability to compete at one of the 4 shows. .
