Thank you to all those who have already registered. We are asking all of you who have registered for the event to suggest topics which you would like to see discussed during the seminar.
Examples of these include workouts, what to look for in Child’s Classes, Horse of the Year scoring system and any other which you would like to see discussed.
A horse’s sensory hairs may not be clipped and/or shaven or otherwise modified in any way under penalty of elimination from the event.
Individual sensory hairs may be removed by a veterinarian to prevent pain or discomfort for the horse. Areas of hair that must be clipped, shaven or removed to allow veterinary treatment are exempt from this rule.
A phase in period of six months is being introduced to ensure horses are competing with sensory hairs. From 1 July 2022, horses found competing with clipped/shaven/otherwise modified sensory hairs will be issued a recorded warning.
Visit the Equestrian Australia website to access the general regulations.
