Information for Competitors

The Equestrian Program replicates many of the disciplines and events that many competitors are familiar within other riding organizations. The program has been developed to attract competitors that have never competed before as well as to cater for those who are looking for a challenge.

HRCAV Levels 1 through to Level 5. Working Equitation will offer Introduction level only.

LINKS FOR LEVEL DESCRIPTIONS CAN BE FOUND AT www.vpesgequestrian.weebly.com.

Medal presentations will be conducted at the completion of each event, once final scores have been posted and confirmed.

Competitors may only enter and compete on one (1) horse per event. One rider, one horse. Riders will not be permitted to ride one horse in an event and use the same horse by another rider in another event. It is not possible for a competitor to win more than a single medal in any event (Individual, Pairs or Teams).

Competitors need to consider the entry category applicable to the combination (horse & rider) for the disciplines entered. These may be different levels for various disciplines. Equalizer points may be applied to scores where applicable. Level assessors will be conducting checks of combinations and the organizers reserve the right to alter the rider’s level to ensure fairness throughout the competition.

Competitors will be allocated tasks over the course of the event to assist the judges, scorers, marshals and organizers. The “Helpers List” will be posted on website www.vpesgequestrian.weebly.com. If you can’t do the task, it will be your responsibility to find someone to replace you. Contact the Coordinator if you are willing to help out.
