The Santa Stakes is a showjumping competition where all of the top competitors with equal faults go forward to a jump-off against the clock.

The Extreme Driving is a class where 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 Christmas Pudding Stakes is a showjumping competition where the fastest time wins, seconds are added to a competitor’s time if they knock a jump down.

The Cayenne Puissance is a showjumping competition sometimes referred to as the big red wall, the jump is put up higher each round, if a horse knocks the jump down or refuses then they are out, the highest jumping competitor wins.
