Join us at Waihora Pony Club Grounds any time between 10am and 3:30pm on Saturday 22 September to practise your dressage, showjumping and cross country.

- The showjumping course will be flagged and numbered at 80cm, 95cm and 105cm heights.
- The cross country course, which is run within the Pony Club grounds, will be flagged and numbered at 80cm, 95cm and 105cm heights.
- The dressage arena is 20m x 40m and will be set up with letters.

We’re planning a relaxed day with no plaiting or hairnets, and dirty ponies are welcome!

We have great facilities with a water jump, corners and skinnies and you can ride the courses as many times as you want or focus on one thing - all with no rush.

This event is a fundraiser for the Waihora Springston Trophy Teams and will be the perfect opportunity for all Springston Trophy competitors and others to practise in a relaxed atmosphere.

Gates will be locked at 4pm.

Waihora Pony Club Grounds, Fiddlers Road, Motukarara which is approximately 15 minutes from Halswell on the Christchurch Akaroa Highway. The entrance will be signposted.

Please take great care when turning from the Christchurch Akaroa Highway into Fiddler’s Road.

By making payment at the gate, you accept that you ride at your own risk. While the organisers will make every effort to ensure your safety and security, all competitors and supporters are responsible for their own Health and Safety.
