November Fun Day Muster

The last muster for the year, Sunday 20th November, is our Fun Day.
 
At our Fun Day, we do plenty of different games, jumping, and a ribbon hunt, plus the fancy dress after the early lunch break. All riders who take part in the fancy dress parade win a ribbon!
 
Parents, hopefully you and your riders have been thinking about your costumes. In previous years, we have had Christmas characters, heroes & villains from movies, fairies, Indians, pirates, knights in armour, etc. If you are lost for ideas, just ask some of the experienced parents.
 
Riders come in their normal club polo shirt and will have time during the long lunch to prepare their fancy dress.
 
A timetable will be sent out closer to the time, but we are planning an 8am start and traditionally this muster finishes early at approximately1pm.
Here are some guidelines to follow for Fancy Dress.
Riders must incorporate their safety helmet into their costume if intending to ride their horse. The horse must be ridden in a bit and bridle, NO RIDING IN HALTERS, but quiet horses may be ridden bareback or without stirrups on their saddle. If riding with stirrups, riders must wear riding boots for safety.
If you are intending to ride bareback or without stirrups, you may ride without riding boots. It is still safer to have some type of footwear on, but if necessary for your costume to have bare feet, please do all your preparations with boots on, and then take them off right at the last minute, just before you are legged up. If anyone has any queries, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Looking forward to this year’s fun!

New Bio Security Rules

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.

https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/biosecurity/about-biosecurity/biosecurity-act-2014/horse-registration-and-movement-records

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.

PCAQ Performance Cards

Dear members,

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.
