It is the riders responsibility to enter as an Amateur Owner Rider ( AOR) by ticking the AOR box when entering on Nominate – the default is Open.

For Official classes only – It is the riders responsibility to enter as a Pony by ticking the ‘Pony’ box when entering on Nominate.  Pony category takes precedence over AOR/Open categories for placings.

Bridle Numbers

It is a requirement of Equestrian NSW that ALL dressage competitors have a bridle number to compete in dressage competitions – this includes EA Official and Closed Restricted classes.

To obtain a bridle number please email info@ensw.org.au. The following information is required in the email:   Horse Name, Registration Number (if the horse is EA registered) and Height, Owner and Riders contact details. If you have previously had a Bridle Number for another horse and it is no longer competing you may recycle this, however you will need to advise EANSW of that number in the email.

EANSW do not supply number holders for your bridle. These may be purchased at your local saddlery store.

Volunteers and Rider Participation at events

As seems to be the message from all dressage clubs these days – the NCEC committee cannot run training/comp days without the help of volunteers and rider participation in various small roles – it’s just not possible with a small committee – so, as a condition of entry, we ask that all riders (or a nominated person) who enter NCEC events are available to do some volunteering at the event. We will do our best to make volunteer shifts as short and painless as possible, so that we can all can enjoy the day.  Roles include gear check, warm-up arena steward, set up and pull down of arenas as indicated on Nominate entry.
