Setup & Help on the Day
In an effort to make the event run efficiently and to give competitors options for helping out in the event, we are trialing a new system.
For this event, each competitor MUST provide a helper!
They have the option of providing someone to:
Help setup on the Saturday at 7:30am for Equitation OR
Help setup on the Saturday at 3:30pm for Showjumping OR
Assist on each day of the events that you are nominated for - duties will be assigned by the organizing committee. If you elect to help on the day: 1 you must have a person available who is is NOT competing. 2 As necessary the organizing committee may reassign you to one of the setup sessions.
Processing Fee and First Aid Levy
Some questions have arisen regarding having to pay these items twice if entering two horses. The answer is Yes, you have to make to entries and you will be charged each time for both Processing and First Aid.
The reason for this is simple:
The Processing fee is based on the total payment. Thus if we were to Charge $35, the Fee is $1, but if you were to enter two horses at the one time the fee would be $2 based on a charge of $70. It is the fee that we pay to enable the online processing of your credit card. We believe this feature has been of benefit to both organizers and competitors as it save on chasing up payments at a later date.
The professional First Aid Paramedics that we use charge us for the time that they are required to be present at the event. IT makes sense then that those who ride two horses extend that time and so we elected to charge the levy for each Horse. It should be noted that in most events that the Zone hold that we loose money on the First Aide Expense.
Neither the organising committee of any contest to which these rules apply, nor the PCAQ, accept any liability for any accident, damage, injury or illness to horses, owners, riders, ground, spectators or any other person or property whatsoever.
