The entertaining Suzuki Jump&Drive class also takes place tomorrow, with riders jumping a small course of fences set at 1.10, and then dismounting and driving a Suzuki car around a set of cone obstacles, as fast as they can causing much hilarity and cheering from the audience. The Jump&Drive is held in the covered arena that was inaugurated last year and that has allowed Dehesa Montenmedio, to take competition to a higher level and permit competitions to continue when the weather is unfavourable. It is a very versatile space and unique as it is also a removable structure.


The Jump&Drive class is enjoyed by all at the show and attracts an enthusiastic crowd of spectators and including riders and supporters. It is held at 18:30 and Mahou beers will be offering free beverages at the side of the arena.
