Team Placing: The scores and times of the top 2 riders from each height (total 4) will count for the countries team classification. A country can do just one height if it wishes but that will not provide them with a team score.
A competitor eliminated in the first competition may start in the second round however, his/her results will not count towards the final result.
- DRAW and STARTING ORDER
A draw will take place to decide the starting order. The order of starting for all horses and riders in the second round will follow the reverse order of the number of penalties in the first round. In the event of equal penalties competitors will start in the same order as in the first round.
- MORE THAN ONE HORSE
Competitors may ride more than one horse but the score of only one horse will count for the final result. The horse must be declared before the draw for the first round.
