Equestrian Entry Form

Musical for Show

To ensure all riders in the 13 & under section are on a level playing field, FYR riders entering WILL be allowed to compete in pelhams and/or spurs, should they wish. If this section is well supported by these riders, we will run a separate FYR musical next year

RAS Registration for Livamol Ridden Thoroughbred

RAS are awaiting final sign off on the registration process, and hope to have the forms available on the website by the end of next week. However, entries will be accepted at Waikato Show as per usual, with the requirement that those entered are registered with RAS prior to showday. Should there be any further delays, allowances will be made in consultation with RAS – no competitor will be disadvantaged.  Find more updates on the RAS Website.
