MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR  RE OUR ONLINE DRESSAGE LEAGUE

Hi Everyone.
It was heartening to see a good turnout for our first ever on line dressage, and I believe there were some good scores in all sections. I think quite a few of us were on a learning curve with the videoing techniques. (I know I was, having a complete dressage ignoramus as well as not being good with the tech as a video-er!)
Well that was the first step for us - as you will have seen from Brenda and Emma the next schedule has gone out (and some entries already in) with much more choice in it. There will be another following soon after.
The results of Lockdown League (well for the moment the club is still in lockdown) will be announced at the finish of these events, and we don't yet know when that will be.
Just to let you know that the league will be divided into the different levels, and that each horse/rider combination will only be eligible for the highest 2 levels they enter, with results being worked out on an average %. (Therefore you would have to enter more than one to get an average.)
Thank you particularly to Brenda for dealing with all the videos, entries and sending out the score sheets - hopefully any teething problems have been resolved. Also to our judge Kimberley dealing with the variety of videoing standards - I am sure it will have made for interesting viewing!
I hope you are all well, and even if you are not taking part in this "event", that you are still riding and enjoying your horses.
Oh and remember if you are doing the Ride and Reward to keep counting the time spent in the saddle.
Stay safe.
Jeni Birks

STATEMENT 19/2/2019

Due To the recent Equine Flu in the UK, Sheeppark have decided to put the following measures in place to protect our own horses and ponies at home. A horse will NOT be permitted to compete unless it has current vaccination against equine influenza which complies with the following conditions;

1.       An initial course of two injections for primary vaccinations, not less than 21 days and no more than 92 days apart, are required before being eligible to compete.

2.      A first booster injection must be given between 150 and 215 days after the second injection of primary vaccination.

3.      Subsequent booster injections must be given at intervals of no more than one calendar year, commencing after the first booster injection.

4.      The full course or booster must have been administered at least seven days before competition.

This year we have decided to vaccinate all our horses which is something we don’t normally do, but due to the current situation and to be able to carry on with all the events that are booked for this coming year we decided this was the only safe and responsible course of action. We ask that anyone coming to ours respectfully does the same.                                                                                                            I will be randomly checking passports personally myself on entry until further notice. We intend to keep this policy enforced even after this out-brake is no longer a threat and we hope that others do the same for the good of our equestrian sport.

Thank you                                                                                                      Joeanna Renwick
