What are the SJ6 and SJ6 DTP?
The SJ6 and the SJ6 DTP are two benchmarking tools for your performance in the show jumping phase. The SJ6 is a jumping penalty average and the SJ6 DTP puts that average into context by capturing the difficulty of the SJ courses you contested. Sam introduces both metrics in this 1 minute video.
Note: The SJ6 Adjustment that Sam explains is now named the SJ6 Difference to Par to more clearly capture what it tells us. Same exact metric, just a new name.
How do I calculate the SJ6?
The SJ6 is the average number of jumping penalties from your last 6 SJ completions.
How do I calculate the SJ6 DTP?
The first step for calculating your SJ6 Difference to Par (DTP) is determining each single DTP from each of your 6 most-recent SJ completions. Then you just average the 6 to get your SJ6 DTP. We show you below.
In this example, an SJ6 DTP of -1.2 means your SJ jumping penalties are, on average, 1.2 penalties lower than average for the courses you've contested. A negative SJ6 DTP is a good thing.
