A. No this is how it will work -

When you enter on nominate

 the classes will have competition rounds and training rounds you can enter. ONLY the competition round of each class will be scored, have prizes and points awarded on the leader  board. 

 

 

The training rounds are there for extra practice and run immidatly after the competition round at each heigh. 

 

So you can enter the same class in Div 1 (comp round) and Div 2 (training round)

 

 

If you decide for example to to enter class 1 twice and class 2 once you would enter

Division 1 and 2 of class 1

And

Division 1 of class 2

 

Prizes and points will only be awarded to division 1 of each class

Division 2 or 3 of each class is for your second or third round at that height for extra training only.

A. You are just equal and will both get great prizes and equal points

 

 

 

Q. How do you split riders who are equal on points on the final leader board?

 

A. Count back to the most xc entered and completed - then if still equal those rounds get ranked on closest to optimum time - then if still equal those rounds ranked under optimum time.

 

Q. How many show jumps are there on the course?

A. Anywhere from 1 - 3 depending on the class

 

Q. Do I need a body protector?

A. Yes you do

 

Q. Dose my helmet need to be tagged?

A. Yes - we will have tags on the day

 

Q. This is my first time doing anything like this. What safety gear do i have to wear?

 

 

A. You must wear an approved (and tagged) helmet with the chin strap fastened at all times. And must conform with one of the current approved safety standard: helmet checking and tagging will be available on the day

 

- The current Australian standard (AS/NZS 3838 - helmets from 2006 onward, providing they are SAI Global marked).

- New Australian standard (ARB HS 2012 provided they are SAI Global marked).

- Current American standard (ASTM F1163 2004a or 04a onwards provided they are SEI marked).

- Current American standard (SNELL E2001).

- Current Britsh standard PAS 015 (1998 or 2011 provided they are BSI Kitemarked).

Interum European Standard (VG1 01.040: 2014-12 with or without BSI Kitemark).

 

Sounds hard to follow? Don’t worry you can easily find out the safety standard of your

helmet just by checking the tag on the inside (sometimes in can be hiding behind the liner!)

 

You will also require a body protector. Manufactured after 2009 to the EN13158:2009 standard or also know as BETA 3 standard. Is the new standard so if you plan on competing officially you will need this anyway. 

 

Number holders: not a safety issue however you will require one so you can slip your number into it so we can Identify each rider on course. You can buy these from most saddlery stores (or borrow a friends!!)

 

Q. How do i get my number ? If i enter more then one class will I have different numbers?

A. Ok so once the draw is sent out you will be allocated a different number for each class or division you entered .

You will need to print out these numbers x 2 of each (for the front and back of your number holder) before you leave home on A4 paper (standard size)

 

** hot tip ** if you have never ridden multiple Xc classes before here’s a helpful tip.

Put all of your numbers in your number holder at the beginning of the day in the order of your ride times with the first horse number on top. As you complete each ride simply pull that top number out so the next one is ready to go.

 

 

More important notes

 

1. There will also be a loo close to the exit gate of the car park, on your way to the Xc start, after your warm up for any last min nerves

2. There will be a food van

3. There will be a coffee van

4. There is a winery literally down the hill as well….. just saying ……

5. Music - of course

6. Plenty of cool viewing areas and you can see the whole course from one spot

  • Dressage tests and warm up for Poles on the Ground and 30-40cm will be on grass and close to the floats 
  • The arena fence for the grass arena will be higher than a normal arena so no ponies can escape!! 
  • Stick to you test times please we cant push dressage back as it effect all the riders 
  • Poles on the Ground and 30 - 40cm Tests are walk trot only and riders may be led if needed
  • The use of martingales IS ALLOWED in the actual dressage test - not excessively short - just normal length for safety if your horse enjoys being slightly on the wild side. We would rather not see your nose smooshed over your face. 
  • All classes: boots and bandages are allowed (this is a silent nod to the match match brigadešŸ˜‰)
  • DRESS CODE: - show jacket or just neat tidy casual. Matchy matchy sets are also allowed.

Showjumping notes

  • ALL SJ will be on grass surface 
  • All warm ups will be on grass surface 
  • course walk open for 20mins before each class - times will be sent with draw 
  • If you miss the course walk someone will be able to tell you the course
  • The actual course will not change in its direction all day, the jumps will just be set to the next class height  - so if you have entered a couple of dressage test you can walk a lower grades course as it will be the same for you later on.
  • If you have entered a couple of dressage tests and it clashes with your sj time you can ride the Sj time out of order - DO NOT be late for the dressage. Just make sure you are back to SJ before the class finishes this time will be sent out with the draw.  
  • DRESS CODE: Basically anything goes - show jacket or just neat tidy casual. Matchy matchy sets are also allowed. 
  • HOWEVER - please if its warm no sleeveless, at least a short sleeve.
