CHESHIRE SHIELD HORSE TRIALS

CHESHIRE SHIELD HORSE TRIALS INCORPORATING …

AREA 4/5 EVENTING CHAMPIONSHIP AND REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER

SATURDAY  6th JULY  2019 – SOMERFORD PARK FARM

Please find attached the schedule and entry form for the above event. I have also attached some information regarding 3rd party/public liability insurance which I trust you will find helpful together with a Frequently Asked Questions sheet

The event incorporates the 2019 Area 4 and Area 5 Championship and Regional Championship qualifiers. The event includes the Open PC90 for individual PC members which was introduced for those PC members who have worked their way up to competing at PC110 level but who have a novice/younger horse with which they wish to compete at PC90 level. We continue to accept entries from non-Pony Club riders and we will do our very best to accommodate as many as possible.

Once again this year we are proposing to start the competition with the PC80 class and work through the classes in ascending height order thus finishing the day with the PC110. This worked well last year and enables us to be as efficient as possible in getting through the day.

In order to encourage as many branches as possible to enter teams, our usual restriction on riders entering a single class on two horses will not apply where the second ride is intended to make up a team.

As usual, those Pony Club Branches wishing to enter teams are able to leave team selection almost until the last minute. All riders/branches should submit entries for individuals by the closing date of FRIDAY 21st JUNE and team selection from those individual entries does not need to be notified (by email would be preferred) until FRIDAY the 28th  JUNE.

It is important, however, that ALL RIDERS HAVE ENTERED BY THE 21st JUNE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE TO BE INCLUDED IN A TEAM. 

We are pleased to confirm that the entry fee, which includes the start fee and medical cover, has been held at the same rate as the last two years – just £75 for all classes. I think you will agree that this represents excellent value for money given the superb quality of facilities that Somerford Park Farm offers.

Please ensure you use a separate entry form for each rider/horse combination entry.

For the first time this year we are able to accept ONLINE ENTRIES via our Entrymaster system accessible on the East Cheshire Branch website –  https://branches.pcuk.org/eastcheshire/2019-fixtures/

I do hope to be able to communicate with all competitors by email and keep them up-dated with event information from time to time, so please try to include a LEGIBLE (to me!) email address. If you don’t have a personal email address, try to arrange to use that of a friend who will pass on news.

IMPORTANT – PLEASE NOTE – EQUINE FLU – All responsible equestrians will be aware of the recent measures adopted by various organisations and venues to protect, as far as possible, against the risks of equine flu. Although Pony Club rules currently require vaccination certificates to be up-to-date within the previous twelve month period, Somerford Park, in line with many other venues, are asking at the present time that ALL visiting horses or horses on livery HAVE VACCINATIONS WITHIN THE LAST 6 MONTHS.

For more information see – https://www.somerfordpark.co.uk/somerford-park-statement-on-equine-flu-13-02-19/

Passports/vaccination certificates will be checked on declaration and horses/ponies must NOT be unloaded until they have been approved.

Volunteers – we are always grateful for offers of help toward running the competition on the day – this is especially the case when it comes to finding XC fence judges. If you – or anyone you know, is willing to help in any capacity, please get in touch with our volunteers organiser, Sally Harris, at the following address:                 crispinharris1@gmail.com
