SO WHAT DO I ENTER?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!!
TRAFFIC CLARIFICATION - CONTINUOUS CENTRE LINES
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.
Where 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.
