Dressage Unravelled - An open letter to members

The executive has posted an open letter to all members regarding Dressage Unravelled (click here)


The next club meeting has been postponed until advised by Executive Committee.


By Lea Bierman
Recently at a C and P comp there were a few people confused as to what group they should nominate themselves in when they enter a else comp.

I hope this helps:
  • C&P DAYS - These are known as Closed and Participant days. They are open to CDG members and EA Participant and Competitive members. Horses don't have to be registered with EA. These days can go to whatever level the Organising club wants to go to. Club members can ride to any level but EA Participant members can only go to Novice. Some clubs offer special day memberships to their clubs on these days so riders can then compete beyond Novice.
    When you enter these days and you are both a CDG member and an EA Participant/Competitor member, then you have to nominate what group you want to ride in on the day. E.g. if you want to ride above Novice or be considered for special CDG Members trophies you would enter as a CDG member. Juniors are placed separately on these days.
  • OFFICIAL DAYS - open to EA registered Competitor riders. Horses have to be EA registered. Grading rules apply e.g. You can ride any two consecutive levels Prep to Advanced. After that FEI rules apply for entry into the international classes at Prix St Georges and above. On these days there is an option to enter into the Professional or Amateur Owner Rider division. These are defined in the rule book but basically a professional is someone who makes their living from horse related activities or sponsorship. These are placed separately on result sheets but an AOR can win both!!




You can cross a single continuous centre line to enter or leave a road, including entering or leaving a property, or to pass a cyclist.

However, you can’t cross a single continuous centre line to:

    - overtake another motorist
    - do a U-turn.

ImageProxyWhere there is a single continuous dividing line to the left of a broken line you can cross the
dividing line to enter or leave a property or road. You are also permitted to cross a continuous
dividing line to safely pass cyclists. You cannot overtake from the same side of the road as
the continuous line, or do a U-turn.

Where there is a double continuous centre line, you are only permitted to cross it if you are
safely passing a cyclist. Section 132, 134 and 139A of the Queensland Road Rules apply.

Hendra virus: have you got what it takes?


Hendra is back with a vengeance. The fact of the matter is that it has never gone away. The disease is here, is a fact of life, and the reality is that we all have to learn to live with it. Commonsense, understanding the disease, and some basic management steps will ensure that we can all still enjoy our equestrian activities with a minimum of risk. Even better news is Click here to read more.....

UPDATE 1/10/2013! A Horse Health Declaration must be handed in at Gear Check BEFORE your ride for all events. Failure to comply may cause disqualification.


Many Hands Make Light Work!

Start thinking about what you can do to help your club?

There are vacancies on committee and sub-committee.

Not sure on where you'd be most helpful..speak to one of the committee members and ask them what they do. They will be able to suggest some roles that you can do...from an executive committee position to just a few hours on competition days - there's something for everyone.
