Winter Series Update
Coming on Sunday?
The weather looks great so we are looking forward to a great days jumping. We anticipate this being a smaller days that our previous one so we hope to have you home earlier!
Competition starts at 8.30 AM sharp so please be ready if you are in the first classes.
For those of you who are attending one of our events or even Show Jumping for the first time we have included a bit of extra information to help you feel at home….
If you have entered online thank you! Online entries will remain open until Saturday afternoon or you can enter on the day.
At our winter training days, we have one course for the entire day. You will be welcome to walk your course before 8.30AM or in between classes while the jump heights are being adjusted. While a class is underway you cannot walk the course, however if you see a rail fall we really appreciate your assistance to put the jump back up so don’t be afraid to help out. We also love assistance to put the jumps up in between rounds.
Ring one will be in front of the Kiosk (The Island arena) and ring two towards the back of the venue.
We run all our classes in Blackboard order. This means that you come along and put your name on the blackboard at a number that is available and suits you. If there are a lot of gaps on the blackboard you turn may come quicker than you think so please be ready. Classes 3.1 and 3.2 in ring one will run together – please let the judge know which class you are in when you enter the arena.
All classes are scheduled to run as Two Phase competitions. A two phase class is just as it says first round and jump-off combined. Riders jump round one and if they are clear they go straight into the timed jump-off against the clock without interruption or halting in between rounds. If they incur faults in the first round/section the judges will ring the bell stopping the rider going into the jump-off phase.
On Saturday from 3 PM we will be setting up the courses at Woodhill Sands and if you are interested in learning your course beforehand this is a great time to come along and do so. It’s also a great chance to ask any questions you may have. We are a group of volunteers so we would greatly appreciate any assistance we can get!
After the day is finished we will require assistance to put the jumps away and would love a hand!
Please all cars not attached to a float are to be parked outside the main gate or on the grass area by the toilet. Trucks and floats please try to park as close as possible.
We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!
