These judges have been randomly selected by Equestrian Australia National office, these judges also meet the EA National Show Horse eligibility criteria.

2016 Barastoc
Barastoc plans are well in advance of last year's, the schedule is set to be released in the coming weeks and our judges (randomly selected by EA National office) will be announced with the schedule.
Breeds for this year are Arabians, Buckskins, Palominos, Pintos, Riding Ponies, Shetlands, Welsh and Native Ponies.
There will also be Sporting Horse events (Novelties), Carriage Driving, HRCAV, also Open and Pony Dressage.
Children's classes will take place on Friday afternoon 12th February and this day will include the Leading Rein Show Pony, Leading Rein Show Hunter Pony (both qualifying events for 2016 Nationals). There will also be childs; pony, galloway and hack classes, all of which will qualify for the Children's Classes at the Nationals in December 2016.
The prestigious Peter Gahan Memorial Trophy Rider class will also be hosted on Friday.

Newcomer classes and Show Hunter state title classes will be held on Saturday 13th. State Title Rider and Hack classes will be on Sunday 14th February, as well as Working Hunters.

The extra Children's classes are an excellent addition to our programme, we are very pleased to provide our future riders the opportunity to compete at our HOTY and possibly qualify to represent Victoria at Nationals 2016.
Evidently, with these new class additions the organizing committee have had to factor additional costings, therefore we are actively seeking sponsors for these particular sections.

Measuring Day
We have successfully hosted two winter measuring days, we thank all of those whom attended and supported these days. Our next measuring day will be at Nationals in December.
These measuring days have also been very productive for training our new measurers who we hope to have fully qualified and accredited as EA official measurers in the near future.
Show Horse Clinics
We have facilitated three winter show horse clinics, providing members with an opportunity to get out and about through the winter months. It was great to see so many riders in attendance and we thank them for their recurring support. We are exploring more options for future clinics and are dedicated to providing our members with the opportunity to further their riding tuition.
