There has been an update to the Jumping rules of the Annual Equestrian League Rules regarding the eligible scores for earning points:
3. Eligible Scores
Riders must score fewer than 8 penalties per round in order to receive points for that class. If there is more than one round in the competition, riders must score fewer than 8 + (4 x number of subsequent rounds) faults in total for the competition.
For example, in a 2 round competition, riders must score less than 8 + 4 = 12 faults. In a 4 round competition, riders must score fewer than 8 + (4 x 3) = 20 faults.

The Equine Academy is a new and innovative force in the welfare and social service landscape in Singapore, which is targeted at Youth At Risk.
The Academy’s programmes are based on the unique ability of a Horse to engage and interact with children suffering from emotional and social problems and disabilities.
In the Academy, the Equine Instructors work with Psychologists and Counsellors, using specially trained Horses and Ponies. Together, they have developed a unique and innovative programme for young Singaporeans who are experiencing early life failure.
The Academy’s signature programme, EQUAL-ARK (Equine-Assisted Learning for At Risk Kids), helps youngsters recover from failure, rebuild their self-confidence, and learn new Life Skills known as Habits of Mind. These new Habits of Mind will help them succeed in School, Employment and Family Life.
The Academy also teaches vocational and professional skills. In the Academy’s purpose-designed stables and teaching clinics, Singaporeans can acquire Professional Certification in equine skills, opening their way to the 200 billion dollar equine industry, which employs over one million people world-wide.
