Under 23 Championships Final – the top ten riders from the first round go forward to the second round. Any penalties gained in the first round are carried over.

The Shelley Ashman International Shipping Ltd., E.M. Rogers (Transport) Ltd. Father Christmas Stakes – An accumulator class where a different number of points are allocated for each fence jumped. The joker fence, which is also the highest fence, carries the highest score.

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 FEI World CupTM Driving Leg presented by Dodson & Horrell – A team of four horses and one driver drive a carriage around, through and over a set of obstacles against the clock, with two grooms also on the carriage. Faults are gained if an obstacle is knocked or the incorrect route is taken, the top score with least faults wins.

The Martin Collins Enterprises Christmas Tree Stakes – The top riders on equal faults go forward to jump off against the clock.
