Expression of Interest – Trans-Tasman Competition

The EA Endurance Committee, in conjunction with ESNZ, are resurrecting the Trans-Tasman competition. This is a friendly international level competition held with New Zealand which alternates between each country on a yearly basis.  This year’s competition will be held at the Stirling Crossing FEI Ride in August 2017 and will be conducted over the 2* 120km event. 

The purpose of the Trans-Tasman competition is to provide a friendly and supportive environment for people who have not competed on an international basis previously to be involved at a relatively low cost. Horses are provided by the host nation for the visiting team thereby reducing cost and complexity.  Riders from the host nation compete on their own horses.

The Committee is looking for expressions of interest for the following:

  • Chef d’Equipe
  • 3 senior riders and 1 youth rider

Horses will need to meet the following requirements:

  • Be qualified to compete at the FEI 2* level
