HANDY HINTS FOR NEWCOMERS TO ENDURANCE
NOTICE IF YOU ARE NOT A MEMBER OF THE CLUB
Day Members MUST complete a Liability Waiver which is on our Forms Page. If you do not use Nominate.com please complete an entry form which can also be found on our Forms Page. All entries not received by the due date will be charged a late fee.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTERING A RIDE
Before each ride, if you have nominated with Nominate.com.au, your entry form will be with the Ride Secretary and you will be asked to sign this form as the rider and/or parent/guardian if the rider is a junior and also complete an Emergency Contact No and if you are happy for photographs to be taken and used on behalf of SAERA. You must bring along with you your 3 day Temperature Log and also a completed Horse Trainer Declaration. If you have any problems please ask the Ride Secretary when you enter.
If you have not nominated prior to the ride you will have to bring an entry form with you or complete one on the day and pay your late entry fee of $10. You will also have to complete the Horse Trainer Declaration and a 3 Day Temperature Log which you can download from here and bring them with you. Note that the Trainer must be a member unless you are entering an Introductory, Intermediate or Mini-Marathon ride in which case the rider of the horse may complete the Trainers Declaration as a day member.
All Day members must sign a Liability Waiver before they can enter the ride.
NEW ENTRY FORM
The new Entry Form for 2019 is now available on our Forms page which you can download and complete before the ride if you wish. Please note that you now have to fill in the PIC No. of the property where your horse is kept and there is also a Horse Health Declaration that has to be completed. All non-Members must also also complete the Liability Waiver.
If you use Nominate.com a form will be produced for you to look at and confirm all the relevant details on it and you will not have to complete another Entry Form.
NOTICE RE MAILING OF ITEMS
Please note that should you require articles to be returned to you in a timely fashion it is recommended that you enclose an express post envelope (suggested for logbooks noting that up to 2 logbooks can be enclosed in the size 230mm x 162mm) with your application or a self-addressed stamped envelope with priority sticker attached (available from Australia Post for 50c each) which will ensure a faster delivery time for your mail. Otherwise articles will be placed in the appropriate envelopes and posted by regular mail.
You may have noticed a new process for nominating for our endurance rides
Online nominating is widely used across several equine sports and we thought we’d see how it worked for endurance.
There may be several things that may be a bit tricky when you first get started and if there is anything you really find objection to……..we want to know about it. Our aim is to make the process simple for everyone – riders and organisers.
To get started go to the endurance page under equestrian and then the events tab. You will find the event there. Click on the ride if you want details otherwise go straight to nominate.
There is some info that is compulsory and must be filled to be able to move on. There is also some info such as horse name that is not required for our sport at the nomination stage. If you are not sure which horse you will be bringing then just fill it as TBA.
The final difference is the $10 nomination fee for all events. This is nonrefundable but will be deducted from your ride fees on event day when the remaining fee is paid.
