The Jim Barnes Memorial Perpetual Trophy is awarded to the Winning Horse in Class 858 (Section 1 Round 3)
This trophy was donated by family and friends of the late Jim Barnes who received an AM in the Order of Australia in 1991 for services to showjumping and horsemanship. James (Jim) Barnes AM was an RAS Councillor from 1951-1967 and RAS Vice President from 1967-1988. From 1988 to 2003, he was RAS Hon Vice President.
