    Anyone planning on going to this?

    I'm going to do the unofficial one but have to do the 70cm jumping due to Benny's size so will have to do a bit of training with him to get up to that height (we tend to go through that height rather than over at this stage ;)). Hope it's a fun day (well if your watching me you'll sure get a giggle cause if we manage to get through the jumping without getting eliminated I'll be lucky to get a fast canter out of Benny let alone a gallop :D)).

    Good on Wanneroo for having unofficial Working Hunter as well as official; I've been wanting to have a go at it but Benny nor I are def not official competitors.

    When is it? Is the program on the 'other' site? They are really nice grounds there, it's a nice club.

    It should be a great relaxed day. All riders will be given a draw time so not waiting around for ages.
    Usually only 2 jumps at maximum height, all the others will be lower**)

    We have sponsors for every height class now, for the official and Unofficial
    Rugs and trophies... yay.

    We ran this event last year and only had 23 riders over 8 height classes. :p

    If anyone wants me to email them a program just send me your email address.

    If you wanted to jump lower than what the height is for your horse you would have to do it HC (Non Competitive).
    and if i have to jump 85cm... on my scary ride, i'm sure you will be ok :)

    ok will have to check and see if im game to jump his height class. but both riding the same horse is ok?

    Look I know some may argue that it would be an unfair advantage to have the same horse do the course twice. I also know the riders and both are unofficial and are just happy to get around the course. **)

    If anyone else wants to do the height with 2 different riders on the same horse then pay 2 entries and go for it. Providing you are unofficial **)
    I think we need to encourage people to have a go at this great class, otherwise i can see it disappearing.

    If it wasnt for the unofficial entries last year we wouldnt be running one this year. We only had 5 official entries last year. Not enough to cover the cost of our judges.

    CWAC - there is always my boy you can take! :) he is currently sitting around doing nothing :)
    Working hunter jumps are different to your standard show jumps so im sure you will be right jumping your sisters pony at the 'higher' height :) and like Janet said only about 2 of the jumps are at maximum height - just close your eyes and grab some mane :)
    Glad your doing Janet on Miss Holly please get some pics and please Party you need to get some pics of Party jumping :)
