We are looking forward to welcoming you to Woodhill Sands on Sunday

 

Exciting News

Woodhill Sands now has a new automatic gate! No more getting out to open the gate.  Check out the Woodhill Sands Facebook page for video footage of the automatic arm.  Please make sure you wait for the gate to fully open before driving though.  

 

Ring Layout  

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

 

Dress Code

Tidy casual dress, platting and jackets are not required. 


 
Course Building 
We would really appreciate any assistance to build our three courses from 1.30pm on Saturday.  Great chance to learn the course and put something back into the sport.   Free class start for those that help! 

 

Falls 

If you fall off (regardless of if you are injured or not) you will need to be checked and signed off by the medic before you can ride again.  Please visit the office to arrange this.

 

YARDS 
Covered and uncovered are available for use but need to be pre booked and allocated.  Please do not just help yourself.  Covered $25, Uncovered $15. Email sjwaitemata@gmail.com to book a yard.  

 
 
At our winter training days, we have one course for the entire day.  You will be welcome to walk your course before 8.45 AM in ring one and 9am in ring two 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.  


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 number of faults.  
 
Rings two  are two phase competitions.  With the exception the crossbar class in ring two (this is run as an A1 where all clear rounds are first equal). 
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 occurred faults in the first phase signalling for you to stop and leave the arena.  
 
To help us get through the day quickly we will require two horses in the ring at all times.  One horse competing and the other waiting out of the way, ready to start when the horse before them as completed its round. 
 
So we can keep everyone safe this weekend please ensure you have read our housekeeping rules. 
 
 
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 day's Jumping.
