Club Training Days

What are training days?

Club training days are conducted around 5 times during the year with one showjumping course and a practice arena built and made available to riders. The course is usually set at approximately 50cms and altered in 10cm increments. The same height may be jumped twice consecutively if so required.

The club owns a large range of professional showjumping equipment and the training days provide an ideal opportunity to ride horses over the types of visually ‘spooky’ fences they are likely to encounter in a competitive situation.

Training days are informal, with an atmosphere of friendly camaraderie fostered amongst the riders. A non-judgemental attitude prevails and riders are encouraged to participate at the height and speed with which they feel comfortable.

All participants at the training days are expected to help in the running of the day – setting up, packing up, pole picking, gate marshals, course change help etc

Where are the training days held?

Training days are generally held at White Park, Scone.

What to wear at our training days:

As these days are not competitions, competition attire is not required. Neat dress (no singlet tops or sleeveless shirts). All riders must wear an EA approved helmet and appropriate footwear at all times when mounted.

Who can participate at our training days?

Because of a change in EA insurance cover, all participants riding at our club days need to be Scone Showjumping Club members in order to be covered by club insurances. Club membership will be available at the time of entry on the day.

Participation on training days costs:

Rounds are paid for on arrival and if extra rounds are required, paid for prior to jumping.

Competitions
