GROUP 1 FEEDS: YOUTH TRAINING DAY & CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW : DATE CHANGE NOW 15th & 16th January 2018 Important Information:
Due to a predicted EXTREME WEATHER EVENT on Thursday 18th & Friday 19th January the Council has had to pre-empt the fact this would be totally unsuitable to conduct this event, with OHS issues and Risk management plans needing to be adhered to. Our Junior Riders and their Horses are always our main concern.
So that the event can still proceed the Council has made the decision to move the event to: TRAINING DAY: MONDAY 15th JANUARY --- SHOW DAY: TUESDAY 16th JANUARY.
With temperatures on these day being predicted in the MID 20’s.
With regret the committee completely understands there will be disappointment from some members as they have made plans around these dates and will not be able to attend, and we appreciate many will have to re organise their arrangements to come earlier, but hopefully being school holidays we hope the majority of children will still be able to attend.
Please accept The Show Horse Councils sincere apologies if your child will no longer be able to participate due to the change of date, and even though the event is basically being run at no cost to members, if you have of course booked Stables, Camping & paid a stable bond this will be refunded back to you, if you could please forward via email- firstname.lastname@example.org your intention not to attend with your nominated bank account, I shall arrange for a refund back into your account. CHANGE OF INSTRUCTORS: Dale Plumb & Jess Stones have confirmed they will still be attending,
I am just waiting to confirm Adam & Phil, if they can not attend as they have lessons booked in Tamworth we shall approach other well know instructors.
Kohnkes will still be in attendance, unfortunately Sandy Parker has previous plans for Monday, we do promise we will have him next time. Working Hunter instructor to be confirmed.
JUDGES:The Show programme will not change, with the exception of the date:
TUESDAY 16th JANUARY Our selected Judges have all confirmed they can attend and Judge at our Show. The Working Hunters classes will be run from 8.30am till 12.30pm MEASURING: Measuring will be now available on the MONDAY 15th between 9.00am to 11.00 am, 11.30am-1.00pm, 1.30pm to 3.00pm, and any horse that does not have a current SHCA Height Certificate will be required to be measured. Applications for measuring can be downloaded from the SHCA website at www.showhorsecouncilaust.com.au .
STABLES & CAMPING: With competitors who have chosen to stable & camp as you can now travel on Sunday, some may change to take advantage of this, please only contact me via email: email@example.com
If you would like to change any prior booking, I DO NOT have any spare stables, unless I have cancellations, so please also email me and I shall put you onto waiting list allocating from those cancellations.
A new Timetable for MONDAY reflecting any changes will be available as soon as everything is in place. - Many thanks Leonie Roberts.

A State Title is looked upon as a prestige Event & should be treated as such. All rules are to be read in conjunction with other rules of the Show. If in doubt please direct your enquiry to SHC Secretary 02.4311 2854 or firstname.lastname@example.org

. *Members residing within 100km of the border would be able to remain a member of the current affiliate club and with provision of a Stat. Dec. be able to
compete at the adjoining state’s “Horse Of The Year Show”. Proof of distance to be provided annually.
The States will need to monitor those HOTY Entries that are acceptable under this Rule to ensure compliance”.
