Zone 24 will be hosting a Regional Dressage School for its club members aged 10 years to under 25 years (Riders under 10 years by ZCI approval only), who are currently competing in Preparatory, Preliminary, Novice, or Elementary Level Dressage. Riders should have been recommended by their Club Executive or ZCI as eligible, for this great opportunity for specialist Coach Training in Dressage.
ALL RIDERS MUST SUBMIT AN EXPRESSION OF INTEREST to Zone 24 Zone Chief Instructor prior to entering. Groups will be sorted according to ability/ merit and age where appropriate. Groups / times may be changed by ZCI after entering.
Riders will be formed into 3 groups of 6, and ride each day for 2 hours over various sessions, on both Saturday and Sunday. Times may vary. Riders MUST be able to attend both days. Riders must have a current Zone 24 Attendance Card and Dressage Card for the horse they are riding and be current financial members. State Dressage Championship competitors, or future State ODE or Combined Training competitors, may take preference over other riders. All riders must attend both days on the same horse, be in FULL PONY CLUB UNIFORM and arrive on clean and well presented horses with correctly fitted gear. A $30 Fee for both days (paid to State) and a $20 Ground Fee (paid to Matcham) -total $50 for both days- will be payable upon registration. Please contact ZCI Margrete on email@example.com for more information.
NOTE: Any rider with PCA Syllabus Certificate Levels in progress (D, D*) must be willing to complete their Certificates within their club within the next 3 months (by 31 May 2021) as part of their acceptance to this clinic and forward a copy to your ZCI (due to CV19 exceptional circumstances this has been negotiated with the State Coach).
