Cross National Camp and Cup in Working Equitation


Working Equitation Down Under Inc

WEDU is excited to invite riders from Australia, New Zealand, Canada & the USA to join in what will be 6 days of friendship, learning, fun and competition at the 2020 Cross National Camp & Cup.

The Cross National Camp & Cup was first envisioned by Julie Alonzo. Julie wanted to find a way for people from different countries to meet one another and share their horsemanship knowledge focused on a common interest: Working Equitation.  And so the CNC was born. The learning experience of the Camp, coupled with the competition of the Cup, is now in its 3rd year, having previously been held in Eugene, Oregon in 2018 & at High River, Canada in 2019.

2020 is Australia's year to shine!



Training Camp:   6th-7th-8th October 2020   Cost: $AUS 500

CNC Cup Competition:  9th-10th-11th October 2020        Cost: $AUS 100 

Payment:  All prices quoted in Australian dollars and exclude the 5.5% admin fee charged by Nominate. To avoid excessive currency conversion fees, it is suggested you select the PayPal option (and not credit card).  A non-refundable fee of  $100 is set up as a complusory payment (this is your entry fee into the Cup). Please select what level you wish to ride at so that we can start planning for the event.  You can choose to pay just the $100 Cup entry fee now and your camping, horse yards and training camp fees by 30th June or to pay everything now.  

You may either pay for the Training Camp now ($500), plus your camping & yard hire now; or by the 30th June when entries close. For insurance reasons, all riders (including those not from Australia) must be current financial members of WEDUI, which costs $20 (plus Nominate admin fees).  If you are not a current WEDU Member when you select your class level you will be taken to the WEDUI Membership page. 

The CNC Cup will be run under the WEDU Rulebook 4th Edition January 2020  (  https://39d713cd-4d78-4e03-8f33
