Series Format


SELECTION

Our five Jump Off teams begin the search for off the track thoroughbreds. We see some incredible back stories of potential Jump Off horses, meet famous owners and keen race goers. We’ll also meet industry experts who are all passionate about a positive ‘life after racing’ outcome for ex-racehorses.

TRAINING BEGINS

Once selection is complete, our riders begin the challenging task of re-educating their horses and getting them ready to jump. It’s exciting training journey ahead but it’s not always easy and no team is immune from setbacks along the way.

FIRST OUTINGS

As training progresses, the Jump Off horses will be put to the test at local shows and some of the best equestrian events at premier equestrian venues in Australia.

GRAND FINAL

The Grand Final event will see the five Jump Off teams compete with two horses for $100,000 at the stunning Boneo Park Equestrian Centre in Victoria. It’s a spectacular night of show jumping under lights and in front of a live audience.
