Sunday 4th August Winter Series Final

Competition starts at 9AM sharp in rings 1 & 2 and 10am in ring 3 so please be ready if you are in the first classes as these classes are often small.


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….

 

Online entries will remain open HERE until Saturday at 7pm.   We will email out a timetable once entries have closed on Saturday.  We will accept entries on the day but this will occur a $20 late fee per horse.  

 

At our winter training days, we have one course for the entire day.  You will be welcome to walk your course before 9AM 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.  On Sunday we will need to pack the jumps up at the end of the days competition so please help us out if you can.

 

Ring Layout (we have changed this from previous days)

Ring one will be in front of the Kiosk (The Island arena) and ring two (ponies) in the arena closest to the carpark.  Ring Three will be to the back of the property closest to the water jump. 

 

PARKING

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 pn the same angle so we can fit you all in.  

PLEASE DO NOT PARK ALONG THE THE FRONT ROW closest to the areanas - this area is reserved. 

YARDS

Covered and uncovered are available for use but need to be booked at the office.  Please do not just help youself.  Covered $25, Uncovered $10.

 

Class Information

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.  IF YOU ARE IN THE FIRST CLASS IN RINGS 1 & 2 PLEASE BE READY TO RIDE AT 9AM.

 

Warming up/practice ring etiqute - if you are new to Show Jumping we strongly encourage you to read this excellent artice writtern by Amanda Wilson.  

 

In ring one classes are scheduled to run as A2 competitions.  This means the class will be one round against the clock, with the winner being the fasted round with the least anount of faults.  Rings two and three are  two phase competitions.  A two phase class is just as it says first round and jump-off combined.  If you jump clear in the first phase continue on and do the jump off phase.  The judges will ring the bell if you have occured faults in the first phase siginallying for you to stop and leave the arena.  



So we can keep everyone safe this weekend please ensure you have read our housekeeping rules.


Please shut the gate behind you - we boundary a busy state highway, and horses getting out onto the road would be catastrophic.


NO TYING TO FENCES! - please tie to your truck/float or leave your horse in its allocated yard if you have booked one.


Do not ride and lead another horse.  


Absolutely no horses are to use the track between the kiosk/office and grass arena.  This is a vehicle only access area. 

 

This is your equestrian venue so please take the time to look after it.  All manure, hay and rubbish MUST be removed from both parking area and yards.  Please prompt your neighbour to do this too so we can spread the word and keep our equestrian centre looking great!
 

 
We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday for a great days Jumping!
