All parents and riders need to be aware of the PCV rule regarding riders entered in a state competition. Rule 34.11a states - "Riders who have been in pony club for more than two years and are aged 14 years & over must have attained their “C” Certificate in order to compete at any state or national competition".
This is non-negotiable and can be heartbreaking to a rider who has the opportunity to ride at an elete level and can't because they have not gained their C certificate. SMZ run regular and well advertised C certificate testing sessiona. Don't be put off by the fear of an 'examination'. The testers are always encouraging and the day can be a real buzz. You also get an opportunity to ride with others from other clubs and make new friends and colleagues outside of competition nervs. The testing dates can be found on the left-hand side of this web-page.
Cross Country Course Build/Design Clinic
An absolute must for all clubs intending to run an event that includes a cross country phase. It is also an absolute revelation to coaches, club officials, riders, parents and other interested parties to learn how courses are built, what safety issues there are and how to minimise risk. The presenter is John Barlee who has a huge wealth of information that he can share with us.
