EVENTING TECHNICAL DELEGATE INFORMATION
These forms will be forwarded to the Technical Delegate Coordinator for TD allocations.

All Pony Club WA Clubs and Zones running ODE’s or Horse Trials running under Pony Club WA Rules must have an appointed Technical Delegate (TD). As from January 1st, 2015, events with 250 or more competitors will not be permitted to run with only one TD.

Technical Delegates are allocated to each event by the Eventing Technical Delegate Coordinator, Clubs are not permitted to organise their own TD’s. Clubs with more than one event will receive allocations for subsequent dates according to TD availability. The TD Coordinator will endeavour to allocate a TD for all event dates requested. If dates requested clash with EWA or other Pony Club WA Club/Zone Events, then the second dates options will be considered. Please check EWA & Pony Club WA calendars when selecting your dates to avoid a clash of dates.

Please note: Clubs are responsible for appointing an accredited Pony Club WA or EWA Course Designer for their event.

GEAR CHECKING
As of 1st January 2018, any club hosting events or training days must have a member that is an Accredited Gear Checker. It is also mandatory to ensure that an Accredited Gear Checker is on the grounds as a volunteer to assist with any queries through the day. Given that gear checking is a safety process very closely linked to risk management, clubs are required to meet this policy.

Conditions of Leaderboard Participation

CLASSES
It is requested that all clubs run classes as per the Leaderboard grades and age groups. If this is not possible, age as at 1/1/2020 must be included in the sumbission of results.

Only one test/class per level will count toward the leaderboards, please note this on your entry form. If this is not specified, the lowest level or height will be used. If your event runs over two days, only classes nominated from one day will be counted. Events included in the Leaderboards must use current accredited officials. They may be Pony Club WA or EA accredited.

Event results will not be added to the Leader boards until results and levies have been received by the office.
