National Western $10,000 Monarch Casino Gambler’s Choice Jumper Stake

January 12, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

A show jumping competition with a rock-and-roll atmosphere, the Gambler’s Choice Jumper Stake features high level jumpers and a uniquely designed course to produce a high-energy performance. Each rider jumps the course of 10 to 14 fences starting at 4-feet 6-inches in height. Each fence carries a point value based on its degree of difficulty. The riders decide their own path around the course but can only jump a fence twice, either direction, and only if it’s still standing.
The daring nature of the horse and rider pair comes into play as the faster, higher jumping horses can get around the course faster and cleaner, thus accumulating the most points. Final scores are determined by adding the total points and subtracting any penalties for exceeding the time allowed. Once the initial jump course is finished and points tabulated, each rider then has the option of taking the Joker fence with the risk of gaining a large number of points or losing those points with a knockdown.
