Waterford Pony Club
the Waterford Equestrian and Pony Club is situated to the South-East of Brisbane, in a semi-rural setting that embraces a real heritage theme. With the Beautiful Cricket Grounds adjacent and the river flowing at the back it is indeed a wonderful place to be.
It's Cross Country course is very open and offeres competitors an opportunity to test their skills over a variety of Cross Country fences.
The Derby Trebble is the brainchild of Mr Ron Ford, who wanted to offer the riders in Zone one the opportunity to have a fun day with all three aspects of Jumping - Showjumping, Equitation and Cross-Country. It is also a great way to introduce both horse and riders to the wonderful world of Eventing.
Over the years it has proven to be one of the most popular events on the Zone Calendar.
The smile on the faces of the competitors is a testament to the FUN nature of the event.
Equitation is simply a system of correct riding. It is a system which caters for all riders regardless of natural ability. Emphasis is placed on co-ordinating and training both horse and rider in the safest, most effective manner. - Jumping Equitation is putting this in to practice over a Showjumping course.
Show Jumping takes place both indoors and outdoors and can be enjoyed all year round. The courses are made up of colored fences which can be easily knocked down if they are hit. Competitors will get faults if they knock a fence down, stop at a fence (refuse) or run around a fence (run out).
A Derby is a combined Showjumping (SJ) Course that comprises both Cross Country (XC) and SJ Fences. The competition takes place over a distance of between 750m and 1300m over a course which comprises at least 50% natural obstacles (ie xc jumps).
