Pronounced “gron pree”, the term translates from the French as “big prize”. The formal night event of the National Western Stock Show, the total prize money is more than $40,000, drawing the top horses and riders from across North America. Grand Prix jumping requires cooperation and teamwork between horse and rider. It takes a special animal and a special person to compete at this level of competition. Each competitor jumps one round over a course of ten to 14 jumps from 4-feet, 6-inches in height and higher. The horses accumulating the least number of faults are required to jump a second round over a course of eight to 12 jumps, raised in height from the previous round. The spreads (width) of all jumps ranges from five to six feet. Final scores are determined by adding the total faults incurred in both rounds and adding any penalties for exceeding the time allowed in either or both rounds. In the event of a tie for first place, a jump-off will occur, with time deciding the winner should there be another tie. [Organizer's description]
