A non-competitive day to kick off the event season. This event will be training rounds only.

Riders will start at 2 minute intervals in their chosen height and you may re-jump, jump a lower height or miss out any fences on the course. Also with time to train between jumps you are able to circle, trot or re-present if you need to, without the time pressure of competition.

  • For TEA (NTEC, NWEA or STEA) members only
  • We need to be Covid-safe. Do not come if you are unwell in any way or have flu like symptoms. Everyone, including those not riding, will need to check- in on arrival 
  • 9am start
  • Entry via gate 2 
  • Casual dress but tagged helmets and level 3 body protectors required (Helmet tagging will be available)
  • There will be a canteen on the day

The Event

Maximum of 2 jumping classes PLUS the roads and Tracks as a warm-up if wanted. Riders can choose to do just the Roads and Tracks twice or any one class twice. 

  • Class 1 Roads and Tracks: There are no jumps in this class. The route will take you around the jumping course through flags/ markers. This class will be useful for green horses who haven’t been out much, so that they can have a good look at everything but can also be done by any horse entered on the day.
  • Class 2 A mixture of show jumps and cross-country jumps from 0cm to 50cm Speed 250m/min
  • Class 3 A mixture of show jumps and cross-country jumps from 50cm to 65cm Speed 300m/min
  • Class 4 A mixture of show jumps and cross-country jumps from 65cm to 80cm Speed 325m/min
  • Class 5 A mixture of show jumps and cross-country jumps from 80cm to 95cm Speed 325m/min
  • Riders must not re-present more than twice to any jump- they must then either attempt the lower jump or go on to the next one.
  • If riders have a fall, they must present to the paramedic before riding again.

$45 per horse for 2 classes plus/minus the Roads and Tracks class
