2018 Horseware Australia  Victorian Equestrian State Championships Schedule link :





Want to compete at the State Championships? Make sure you have evidence of Participation to Enter State Championships.

The 2018 Victorian Interschool State Championships require that every rider/horse combination must have participated at an Interschool event since the 12th of April 2017 up until close of entries 25th February 2018 – no exceptions. The event must have been on the VEIS calendar, one of the 6 EV Interschool Horse Trial Qualifying events in 2017, Elmore or Scott’s College or MacArthur 2017 Interschool events. Competing at the State or Australian Interschool championships in 2017 is not included.

If you want to enter multiple horses, you must have participated at an event on all horses, you do not need to have competed in the same classes/levels/heights at which you will enter but clearly it is in the best interest of all riders to ensure you are experienced and competent to compete at the State Championships at the appropriate level.

 Australian Championships qualification

The first and second place getters in Dressage and Showjumping classes for each of the National qualifying events (these are marked by “Nat “ in the schedule) are eligible to represent Victoria at the Australian Championships to be held in Toowoomba, 25th to 29th September 2017.  Placing 3rd and 4th in those events will be the team reserves in Dressage and Showjumping.

 In Show Horse and Combined Training, placegetters 1st to 4th in National qualifying events (these are marked by “Nat “ in the schedule) will be eligible to represent Victoria.  In the event of the first-fourth place getters being unable to attend the Australian Interschool Equestrian Championships, the remaining places will be filled at the discretion of the Interschool Committee.

Qualifications are based on the combination of horse and rider, there will be no substitution of horses or riders in qualified combinations.

At the Australian Championships riders will be limited to competing in 2 classes, they may still compete on 2 horses, but the limitation of 2 classes per rider will remain. Eg 1 horse in 2 levels of dressage, or combined training and 1 dressage class, show horse and 1 dressage class, 2 horses in 2 different show jumping heights.  For the purpose of clarity Class in the Australian Championship schedule refers to 2 dressage tests at the same level, 3 phases of show horse, 3 show jumping competitions at the same height.

Specifically, should a rider/horse combination qualify in Show Jumping or Eventing and also in dressage and/or show horse, riders will need to decide which class to compete in when the Australian Championship schedule has eventing or show jumping scheduled first in the competition.  Riders cannot compete in jumping competitions prior to competing in dressage or show horse.
