10th October – a forum was run for Club Committee Members to introduce new resources that are available to assist clubs as well as discuss upcoming rule changes for clubs. A link for the recording of the session has been emailed to all clubs.



Planning is under way for the ENSW AGM. More information will be emailed to members on the date and time shortly.



In the last quarter NSW will host 3 National Championships:

  •       The Silver Jubilee Vaulting Championships were successfully held last   weekend at SIEC

Spectator entry is free – so come and cheer athletes representing NSW.

There were several major events run in September by the NSW discipline committees:

·      Show Horse NSW hosted the very successful Horse of the Year.

·      Dressage NSW successfully ran the NSW Dressage Championships.

·      Jumping NSW ran State Championships.

All of these events rely on the work of volunteer committees and volunteers to help run them – it is a truly impressive that these events are so professionally run by these dedicated individuals.
