HEY CENTRAL EAST RIDERS – IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR EQ ON FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO WIN A FABULOUS CUSTOM TACK BOX AT THE END OF THE 2018 SHOW SEASON
We are pleased to introduce The Mountain Oak Box Co. Central East THJA Equitation Championship.
Open to all B and A riders and to adult amateur riders.
Riders will compete in their age appropriate equitation classes (both flat and over fences/medal) throughout the regular show season. Riders must show in the minimum number of shows as required by the Zone to qualify for year end awards (ie. 50%).
Riders must compete in both
(a) their age appropriate equitation on the flat and
(b) Either their age appropriate equitation over fences or their division appropriate medal class.
Riders must declare by the beginning of the second regular season show in which they compete whether they wish to accumulate points in over fences or medal classes. Riders may switch between qualifying classes once they have declared but points will only count in one division and will not be retroactive . Declarations must be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Riders will accumulate points for each placing from 1 – 6 at each show in which they participate as follows:
1st Place – 6 points
2nd Place – 5 points
3rd Place – 4 points
4th Place – 3 points
5th Place – 2 points
6th Place – 1 point
The top ten (10) riders will be invited to participate in an equitation ride-off to take place during The Zone Classic at Palgrave in August. The ride-off will be a flat portion with one jump (fence to be no higher than 2’6”) and may include:
Points will be tallied after each regular season show and will be posted on the Central East THJA website.

Central East Zone would like to thank Christine Reupke for taking on the huge task of coordinating the return of last year’s trophies. If you received a trophy at our 2016 Banquet, please return them to the office at one of the two August shows at RCRA or to the show office at Zone Classic. New this year – If your trophy is not returned by Zone Classic they will then be due by Championships but you will incur a $50 fine. If your trophy is not returned by Championships, the fine will be increased to $100. It is very important that trophies are returned on time, to ensure that the Banquet Committee has the necessary time to take care of any repairs or replacements to the trophies.
There are no camper spaces available at Caledon Equestrian Park for Championships. If you are looking to camp near the park, contact Leisure Time Park on Highway 9 or Albion Hills Campground on Highway 50. Please remember that Championships take place over the holiday weekend (starting on Wednesday, August 30) and campgrounds will fill up quickly, so book your campsite early. Entry forms and instructions should be available on our website at the beginning of August. The tentative Championship schedule and other related forms can be found at http://www.thja.ca.
