THE in­ter­na­tional jump­ing sched­ule was re­duced by a day this year, now run­ning from Fri­day to Sun­day. This meant that two classes were lost, but the same prize fund re­tained, mak­ing the re­main­ing classes richer.

“Last year [the prize fund] was di­vided over 11 classes — this year it’s di­vided over nine,” a spokesman for the show said. “This has al­lowed us to in­crease the prize fund for a ma­jor­ity of classes. For ex­am­ple, in 2015 the smaller classes had a prize fund of £4,000 but this year they have a prize fund of £10,000.”

The spokesman added that the de­ci­sion to re­duce the in­ter­na­tional sched­ule was to fall in line with other in­ter­na­tional show du­ra­tions.
