Additional Details

The event will follow the Area Mounted Games format and rules. All teams must provide 2 line stewards plus someone to assist with equipment. This is designed to be a fun “learning” environment for parents and children alike. We encourage everyone to join in accordingly. Hopefully we have enough entries to have a senior, junior and novice competition with 4 or 5 teams in each event. We will combine the events if needs be and adapt the races as needed. Please could experienced teams/parents be ready to help those who are new to team mounted games. All N & T children should enter as individuals and teams will be sorted out when we know who is coming. Start times to be issued when team numbers are confirmed. Children from Branches/Centres without teams are welcome to enter. Refunds will be made if we are unable to make up a team for individuals. Please put your branch name in teh special request section (it it hasn’t already asked for it – sorry new to this system) please could teams also indicate if they are happy for an individual to join them to make up numbers. We may need some teams to bring some additional equipment, we will contact you directly if this is the case.

Vaccination Policy

A valid passport must accompany the horse/pony to the event. All horses and ponies receiving a new primary course of vaccinations from 1 January 2024 must be vaccinated according to this schedule: • initial primary course of two vaccinations (V1 and V2) must be given: the second vaccination (V2) must be administered within 21-60 days of the first initial vaccination (V1) • Horses may attend activities 7 full days after receiving the second vaccination of the primary course (V2). • A first booster vaccination (V3) must be administered within 120 – 180 days of the administration of the second vaccination of the primary course. • Thereafter booster vaccinations must be administered at a maximum of 12 months intervals. Horses and ponies must not attend activities within 7 days of receiving any vaccination. For clarity: no horse or pony may compete on the same day as a relevant injection is given or on any of the 6 days following such an injection. If you are unsure whether your vaccinations comply, check with your vet. Passports will be randomly checked – non-compliance will mean no participation and no refund.
