Schools Equestrian Event – Extra Information

Unless otherwise stated and where relevant, the most recent EA National Eventing Rules with the PCAT Addendum will apply. For further information on any rules please contact Tania Walsh 0427 505 519 or lilydalepc@gmail.com prior to the event date. School co-ordinators are also advised to clarify any rules relating to saddlery BEFORE the event.

Specific rule differences:

DRESSAGE PHASE

Each rider will perform a dressage test. The tests are;

Grade 3 – EA Preliminary 1C
Grade 4 – EA Preliminary 1B
Grade 5 – EA Preliminary 1A
Grade 5A – PCAV 5A (note: this will be held in a 60 x 20m arena)

Grades 3 to 5 can be found via https://www.equestrian.org.au/dressage-rules and http://www.ponyclubvic.org.au/site/ponyclub/vic/downloads/Publications/Rules%20and%20Regulations/Dressage/Grade%205%20Tests/Dressage%20G5%20Test%20A%202013.pdf for Grade 5B. All combinations will complete their dressage phase and then there will be a break before their jumping phase.

JUMPING PHASE

The jumping course will be a combined course of cross-country and show jump fences. The course will include between 10 and 15 efforts.

ELIGILIBITY

The competition is open to students who are attending Tasmanian government and non-government schools, as well as grade 11/12 colleges and equivalents in Tasmania. Schools may enter as many riders as they wish. Schools that are unable to form a team may enter individual riders who will be combined with other riders to form a scramble team.

After the entry closing date, individuals who have entered will have their entry sent to the school’s equestrian co-ordinator who must approve it in order to ensure the riders are competent to ride.

Riders must be a current member of a Tasmanian pony club. Membership information is available and forms can be supplied upon request.

TEAMS

Teams will consist of 3 or 4 riders with the best 3 scores to count. Teams are encouraged to select a team “name.” Schools are to be responsible for the safe keeping and return of all perpetual trophies.

COMPETITION

There are separate competitions:

  • Senior Composite from Grades 3, 4, 5 and 5A (3 or 4 riders from two or more competition grades)
  • Junior Composite from Grades 3, 4, 5 and 5A (3 or 4 riders from two or more competition grades)

NOTE: The senior & junior sections will be decided by taking the average age of the teams and dividing the entries into 2 halves (if there is an odd number then the junior section will have the extra). There is no guarantee which section your team will be in, however a team of primary students would definitely be “junior” and a team with one or two under 12’s is likely to be junior (depending on the age of the other team members).

ENTRY

Entries via nominate by individual riders. Closing date for entries is Friday 8th September. The entry must be accompanied by the correct entry fee, and be signed by a responsible person in order to be valid. Entries will be sent to the school’s equestrian co-ordinator who will provide approval of appropriate entries.

Entry will be limited to approximately 120 riders due to time restraints.

SCRAMBLE TEAMS

In the event that a school cannot provide enough riders for a team, they can enter 1 or 2 riders who will be combined with others to make up a scramble team. A scramble team cannot win perpetual trophies, however they will be awarded ribbons.

FORMAT

The competition will consist of dressage, cross-country & show jumping. Dressage is held first and this is followed by a combined show jumping/cross-country phase. The timetable will be advised at a later date prior to commencement of the competition. Dressage will be held in 60 x 20m arenas.

DRESS CODE

Approved safety helmet and smooth soled riding boots MUST be worn at all times when mounted. Body protectors MUST be worn by riders competing in ALL grades for the jumping phase. Neat, tidy dress is required. Schools may select their own uniform if required and are encouraged to do so. Whips may only be carried in the dressage phase by grades 4, 5 and 5A.

PRIZES

A Saddleworld trophy will be awarded to the winning team of each competition. The trophy should be displayed at the school and returned in time for the following year’s competition. The trophy will be engraved with the names of the winning team at the school’s expense. The trophy remains the responsibility of the school until returned. Individual ribbons will be awarded to 4th place. 

ASSISSTANTS

Each individual rider must provide one assistant. Entries will not be accepted without this.

RESERVATION OF RIGHTS

The organisers reserve the right to cancel or divide any class, alter the advertised times, or refuse any entry, with or without stating a reason. No smoking, dogs or stallions allowed.
