ID Tags

  1. I am an unregistered rider and have seen ID tags on horses halters, I am wondering why this is?

    All horses on the grounds are required to have ID tags detailing the horses name, it's owners name and the owners cell phone number. This is incase the horse gets loose and we need to contact the owner, tags can be obtained from the office in the Hokonui Pavillion at competitions or alternatively at the Saddlery Warehouse or your local merchant.

Test Paper Collection

  1. I was wondering what the process is for collecting my test paper after I have completed my test as sometimes this takes longer than normal?

    For each class we need to collate all competitors papers, record their marks and have the judge sign off the results at the completion of the class before we can release any papers. However sometimes this could take longer than normal as we may be training judges so the papers must be retained for the judges to go through them.

Parking along side the arena

  1. Can I park along side the arena

    There will be poles and cones being placed 15 metres from the closest arena. Also vehicles must be parked prior the first competition starting. You will be allowed to move at the lunch break and when the competition has finished. If you arrive outside these times please park out the back by the yards or by the hospital grounds. Your consideration to fellow competitors is much appreciated.
