The 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 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.
