Important Info for Competitors

Competitors must attend gear check with the steward after EACH test. Anybody who does not attend gear check will be eliminated, as per the EA rulebook. Our officials will do their best to remind you, however it is your responsibility to attend.

Dogs are NOT permitted on the grounds at any time (with the exception of registered assistance dogs).

Only horses that are entered for competition are permitted on the grounds. If you would like to bring a horse for experience (or a companion horse) but do not wish to compete, you must enter the horse for competition, with a note that you do not wish to ride the test. The horse will be placed on the draw in a reserve position only.

We recommend that competitors supply their own drinking water for horses as the supply for the wash bays is bore water. There has been an investigation (2015) in relation to chemical contamination of underground water in the Williamtown area, however we have been advised that the grounds are not within the contamination zone.

Please have consideration for other horses and riders in the warm-up area. Keep a minimum distance of 10m from competition arenas when warming up. Coaches are not to give instruction to riders in the area surrounding the arena.

Any incidents or accidents MUST be reported to the office and we have a dedicated first aid officer to provide assistance. We must file the necessary paperwork for all incidents, even if nobody was injured.

Approved helmets (with the necessary yellow EA tag) must be worn while riding. Please see the Gear Steward at the hut in front of the office before you ride if you require a tag.

All horses and ponies must wear their EA bridle number displayed on both sides of their bridle/saddlepad/halter at all times. Contact EA to obtain a bridle number.

Stallions must be ridden and handled by persons 18 years or older at all times.

Callers are allowed for all events except FEI.

Dressage tests and the rulebook are available from the EA website.

Preparatory Classes

These tests are designed for horses and riders just starting out in dressage. It is assumed that all riders in these tests are amateurs, therefore there is no specific AOR category in these tests.

Riders who have ridden Elementary or above must enter Preparatory tests as non-competitive.

Horses that have won a Preparatory test or placed in a higher level test must ride non-competitive.

Para/Equibility Test of Choice

Para and Equibility riders have the option to ride up to 2 tests of their choice in our Para/Equibility Test of Choice classes.

Please indicate with your entry the test you wish to ride; EA or FEI, which grade and which test.

Remember to supply any Para or Exemption cards required to our Events Team via We will ensure these resources are available for our judges.
