QI3DE 2014 Acknowledges Owners Contribution to Eventing

Friday, 25 July 2014

 

 

Owners of performance horses, often the forgotten participants in equestrian sport, are to be recognised for their contribution to Eventing at the Qld International 3 Day Event (QI3DE) 28-31 August, Warwick. Owners are the people who breed or purchase horses for Eventing competition and pay all the expenses required to care for, train and compete these Eventers.

Without owners we would not have Eventing competitions.

Just as successful riders are recognised, QI3DE wishes to commence a process of not only recognising current owners of Eventers but encourage new owners to join the sport and enjoy the thrills and social engagement of Eventing.

QI3DE is very fortunate to have the support of Davidson Equestrian in offering a free service to one of their two stallions at stud  “Fairbanks Catargo” (right) or “Sambucca D “ (left).

A draw will be conducted on the final day of the QI3DE from owners of horses competing at the QI3DE. To be eligible for the draw owners will have to enter the draw by completing an entry form during the days of the competition. Owner/riders are also eligible to enter.  Only one name per entry per horse will be accepted.

Please be aware that the winner of the draw may choose from the two stallions on offer. However, the prize only provides a free service. Ancillary costs associated with the stud process will be the responsibility of the winner.

Thank you owners of Eventing horses. QI3DE values your participation

Get Started round 4 is now open

Thursday, 24 July 2014

 

 

Get Started is one of three funding programs that comprise the Queensland Government's Get in the Game initiative to support sport and recreation at the grassroots level. Get Started assists children and young people who can least afford, or may otherwise benefit from joining a sport or recreation club.

 

 

Get Started rounds 1, 2 and 3 were highly successful. Over 43,500 vouchers have been provided to eligible children and young people across Queensland, with 27% of them indicating they had not previously been a member of a club.

The program provides eligible children and young people aged five up to 18 with a voucher valued at up to $150 for sport or recreation club membership and/or registration fees. It should be noted that vouchers are issued on a first come first serve basis; therefore, there is no guarantee that a child or young/person will obtain a voucher.

Almost 3400 clubs are registered for the program. Clubs can apply for Get Started registration at any time. Registration is valid for the entire three year program period; therefore there is no need to register for each round.

Fact sheets for clubs, parents/guardians and referral agents are attached. They provide an overview of the eligibility criteria. More information on Get Started, including the registration process and promotional materials that can be used by clubs to advertise their involvement in the program, is available at http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/funding/getinthegame/getstarted.html.

New Hendra virus case confirmed in Gladstone area

Monday, 21 July 2014

Queensland Government

Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry

 

Media Release

 

19 July 2014

New Hendra virus case confirmed in Gladstone area

Biosecurity Queensland has quarantined a property in the Gladstone area after a deceased horse tested positive for Hendra virus infection. 

Chief Veterinary Officer Dr Allison Crook said the horse had been unwell for a number of days and was found dead on Thursday.

“The positive test result was received last night,” Dr Crook said.

“Tracing and exposure assessments are being undertaken on other horses that may have had contact with the infected horse to work out if further testing needs to be done.

"The property has been quarantined which means restrictions apply to moving horses and horse materials on and off the property. The quarantine will be in place for at least one month.”

Queensland Health is following up all human contacts. At this stage it appears no one is at serious risk.

Dr Crook said this was the third case of Hendra virus in Queensland this year.

"Hendra virus infection can occur throughout the year, so it’s important that horse owners take steps to protect themselves and their animals at all times,” she said.

"The affected horse had not been vaccinated. Vaccination is the single most effective way of reducing the risk of Hendra virus infection in horses. It is recommended that horse owners speak to their veterinarian about vaccinating their horses.

"If a horse becomes sick, owners should contact their veterinarian immediately. People in contact with horses need to remember to continue to practice good biosecurity and personal hygiene measures even if a horse is vaccinated against Hendra virus.”

For more information on prevention of Hendra virus or biosecurity steps in an incident, visit www.biosecurity.qld.gov.au or call 13 25 23. For information on the vaccine, visit www.health4horses.com.au

Pink bras and blue jocks wanted for QI3DE

Monday, 21 July 2014

 

 

The call has gone out for people to raid their underwear-drawer for pink bras and blue jocks. Donations are wanted to make up 250 metres of bunting for the cross country course at this years Queensland International Three Day Event (QI3DE), 28th - 31st August, Morgan Park, Warwick.

Pink Bras and Blue Jocks founder Deborah Wheeler said the charity is teaming up with QI3DE to raise awareness and much needed money to help make life easier for people receiving treatment.

“All money raised will go directly to the Mater 'chicks in pink' and The Wesley Hospital's Prostate Cancer Service, for things like care packs, car parking, house cleaning, counselling services, mastectomy bras and wigs.  It's all about raising awareness and having Pink Fillies and Blue Stallions supporting each other,” said Wheeler.

“We’ll be collecting gold coin donations over the course of the event, and on the Sunday (31st August), there’ll be a 5km Fun Run. Participants are encouraged to join in on the fun run and walk event, dressed in pink and blue to show their support.

"Everyone is welcome - mums and daughters, dads and sons, people walking their dogs on a lead and we love to see school children out and about with their families and friends. Participants can to stay for breakfast at the Athletes Cafe.

As part of the fun, 250 meter bunting made from pink bras and blue jocks will be strung around the equestrian cross country course.

“We’ve already started collecting, but we need donations – pink bras and blue undies!” Ms Wheeler said.

QI3DE President Dr Cameron Osborne said not only will the bunting have a practical application, but also it’s a great way to help the charity.

“The bunting will be used on the cross country course, so the crowds know where they can safely stand to watch the horses and riders in action. It’ll be a great fun visual spectacle, and we hope to raise awareness and some much needed funds for the charity,” Dr Osborne said.

The International level 3 Day Event is expected to draw a crowd of around 2,000 people to Morgan Park, Warwick as Australia’s top riders compete in dressage, cross country and showjumping. Also thrown in the mix will be bragging rights as the Queensland and New South Wales teams battle it out in the State of Origin on horseback.

Donations of Pink bras and blue jocks can be sent to;

FEI Officials Exchange Program

Sasha Ulasowski, Tuesday, 15 July 2014

FEI Officials have the opportunity to apply for an exchange program to officiate overseas.

Its purpose is to assist National Federations and FEI Officials in getting access to events and being an official member of the respective team of officials.
 
The Exchange Programme is available for all Officials in all FEI Disciplines, with the exception of Eventing where a separate training programme has been set up (for further information on the Global Education Programme please visit the FEI Website: “Officials”).

Warwick Horse Trials hosts FEI International ODE June 21/22

Sponsored by ACE Earthworx Pty Ltd this competition is shaping up to be Queensland’s Premier International One Day Event.

Event Director, Richard King, said “Warwick Horse Trials is hosting its first major event of the year this weekend 21/22 June.  With just under 200 riders competing in classes from the CIC 3* to the pre-introductory class we are expecting an outstanding weekend of competition for competitors and eventing enthusiasts.

In the FEI classes there are over 30 riders who are aiming to upgrade their international ranking positions.  We are also very encouraged to see a large number of entries in the lower grades indicating that the future for eventing in Queensland is very strong.  Warwick Horse Trials is keen to encourage the grassroots participants as these riders will be our future stars.  This weekend’s competition is a wonderful opportunity to see young riders and horses setting out on their eventing careers.”

The 2014 Aitkens Future Star of the Year Series is now up and firing, after a damp start with our first round being washed out at Toowoomba Royal.  Winner of Roma Show's Round 2 points was Matthew Whalley and his lovely little mare Vidacious.   Gympie Show's Future Stars Class was a very competitive round, with Kirstie Ansell and her imported "Balou" out first in the jump off and setting a pace that turned out to be unbeatable.  Thankyou to Ray Waldron of Roma Show and John Warren of Gympie Show for hosting these rounds.

Next round is this Saturday 7th June at Caboolture Show, then Round 5 at the Sunshine Coast Show on the 15th June. 

Good Luck to all!

Use of non EA NCAS Coaches by Schools

Tuesday, 3 June 2014

It has recently come to our attention that some Schools are not using EA NCAS current and qualified coaches. Whilst it is at the discretion of the School as to the employment of staff/coaches it should be noted that the use of non EA NCAS qualified coaches can result in the much higher likelihood of the school being directly joined into an action should an accident occur.

This includes the use of coaches or persons who provide ‘advice’ to riders.

EQ highly recommends the use of EA NCAS Current and Qualified coaches. A list of these coaches can be found on the EQ Website under ‘Searches’.

Should you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact Equestrian Queensland, 07) 3891 6611
