The Turkish Airlines Speed Stakes – A speed class where the fastest rider wins. Time penalties are added for any fences knocked down.
The Christmas Masters – There are a maximum of five rounds, and each competitor who jumps clear goes forward to the next round. Every time a competitor comes in to jump, they select a fence to be raised in height. Any penalties mean elimination and the final rider remaining wins; if there is a tie, the fastest final round is victorious.
The Turkish Airlines Olympia Grand Prix – One of the most important classes of the week, jumped at a height of 1.60m. All those who jump clear go through to jump off against the clock.
The Mistletoe Mini Stakes – A showjumping class for ponies under 128cms with junior riders (aged 12 and under) with jumps up to 1.15m. The top riders on equal faults on the first round go forward to jump off against the clock.
