Details of our next muster, Sunday 23rd October, 8am - 2pm. Informal Uniform.
At our next muster, we will be holding a One Day Event (ODE) Training Day. Our ODE consists of 3 separate phases: dressage, derby cross country and show jumping. The ODE requires a lot of assistance from parents – can parents please come prepared to help – all parents should have a turn calling for their rider in the dressage, pencilling in the dressage judge's car, rail stewarding for show jumping, and being a helper for cross country.
There will also be games and stockmans activities if there is spare time!!
We always have lots of fun on the day – its very inclusive and non-competitive. Even the youngest riders do a dressage test (parents are most welcome in the dressage arena), and get around the showjump and cross country courses. Parents should bring a lead rope if required, and wear joggers if they intend to run the cross country – it’s a fair way!!!
Here are the Classes for the day.
Class A: Jump 20 cm + Dressage - choose either PCAQ WalkTrot A or PCAQ Preliminary 1C
Class B: Jump 40 cm + Dressage - Choose either PCAQ Walk Trot A or PCAQ Preliminary 1C or PCAQ Novice 2B
Class C: Jump 60 cm + Dressage - Choose either PCAQ Preliminary 1C or PCAQ Novice 2B or PCAQ Elementary 3A
Class D: Jump 80 cm + Dressage - Choose either PCAQ Preliminary 1C or PCAQ Novice 2B or PCAQ Elementary 3A
Eg. Name: Jenny Rider, Class B (Jump 40cm), Dressage Test Prelim 1C

To get a copy of the PCAQ dressage test, download it from the PCAQ website. Go to www.pcaq.asn.au, click onto "Resources", “Rule Books”, then “Dressage Test Book 2014”. Print off whichever dressage test you need. Bring this test in a folder on the day so it can be called as required. Riders can start practising their dressage test now.

The Biosecurity Act 2014 commenced on 1st July 2016 with some changes to Horse Owners responsibilities. Below is a link that may help you understand your obligations as horse owners.
Please be sure to use the new horse health declarations (HHD) download here as these are compliant with the Biosecurity Act's movement record keeping requirements (includes BHPC PIC number) at all musters.
Please note that ALL riding members (of all ages) who wish to compete in Official events in any of the disciplines, must now get a Performance card for each of those disciplines.
To do this:
1 go to the PCAQ website...
2 Find the tab on the left which says PCAQ forms (and click to open)...
3 A little down from the top is a form called '2016 Application to register a horse' (and click to open)..
4 Print off this form and complete ... (one for each horse)
5 If possible, get the club secretary to sign off, but otherwise they will still accept it if you need to get it in asap...
6 You need to pay $6 for each performance card you want (therefore up to $24 if wanting 4 cards)...
7 Send to PCAQ and they will process...
Phone number for assistance PCAQ office 32161255
You may be able to pay for it with your card...
If you are thinking of needing one, do it a.s.a.p. as it may take some time to get it into your hands.
Events will not allow you to compete without handing in your card, and you will not get your points without the card.
