Wow, what a great day of jumping at first event in 2017 – a massive 200 rounds of jumping at our February Training Day that was held in Taminga Jump Club’s wonderful arena.
SRSJC co-founder and committee member Les Bunning supervised the ring action , tweaking an encouraging course designed originally by Martin Hellier. SRSJC’s partnership with Taminga has produced two highly successful Training Days in 2016 and 17. This year’s event on Sunday, 26 February benefited from gratefully cooler weather (the previous day being over 40 degrees) and efficient marshaling that saw the final, 1.20m round finish at 3pm.
Be sure to check out SRSJC’s official photographer, Eric Lloyd Photography (www.ericlloydphotography.com) to see pictures of our Training Day and all of this year’s SRSJC events.
Next up…. SRSJC’s first official show, indoors at Brookleigh on Sunday, 26 March. Look for details and entries to be posted online at www.globalentriesonline.com.au
Riders can kick start their jumping season at Swan River Showjumping’s Training Day, held at and in conjunction with Taminga Jump Club, located on Haddrill Road, close to SRSJC’s Brookleigh home grounds.
Rounds start at 60cm, rising 10cm each round to 1.20m – or higher if there is time and demand for bigger fences. Les Bunning’s encouraging 60cm-1.20m courses and Taminga’s wonderful jumping surface are the perfect combination for introducing horses – and riders – back to the ring after the summer break. And Les is happy to lend a hand in the arena to help anyone needing assistance.
Since the weather at this time of the year could be warm, we’ll provide complimentary bottles of water – and you can purchase on-site refreshments.
First rounds start at 7.30am; course open to walk at 7.00am. Maximum 4 rounds per horse. Riders must be EWA members; Non-EWA PCAWA members welcome, but must have SRSJC Day Membership to ride at all of our events.
