Height change proposal for Junior Rider / Pony Grand Prix
A discussion document has been posted on ESNZ website regarding proposed changes to the heights for Junior Rider and the Pony Grand Prix. As this affects the riders it is important that they read it and send feed back to either Sarah Power or Anna Palmer via email by 20th March. Also there should be a survey on the ESNZ website regarding the document by Friday 7 March.
Show Hunter newsletter for the end of the season is now available
South Island Show Jumping Young Rider Scholarship applications are now open. The scholarship is open to South Island Riders who are eligible to compete in the Young Rider competition 2013/14. It is with Catherine Cameron at Cambridge, at a time to best suit both parties. There is $500 available to assist with travel costs. Further details and application form
ID Numbers are no longer being used nationally, but at Canterbury shows, Show Hunter will still use a three digit ID number for the judge to identify horses (rather than names). For Show Jumping there will be no ID or Back numbers. ID number holders are available from saddleries for around $6-7, they are attached to your saddle or breastplate.
ESNZ Jumping Information Booklet
A new Jumping information booklet has been constructed to provide basic information on the Jumping discipline to competitors just starting out or not currently involved in ESNZ Jumping.
The booklet is free from the ESNZ shop and is available to anyone
