SRSJC ANNOUNCES 2-DAY 2016 AUTUMN JUMPING CARNIVAL IN MAY and CANCELLATION OF ITS APRIL SHOW

With key SRSJC organising members out of state in April, SRSJC is cancelling its previously scheduled 23 April show at Brookleigh and replacing it with a special two-day event on 21 & 22 May.

Our inaugural Autumn Indoor Jumping Carnival includes EWA Jumping Horse of the Year and Silver Series Qualifiers, Junior, Young Rider, points restricted competition and height classes that will be perfect for prepping  young horses for the club’s upcoming indoor Horseland Young Showjumping Horse Championship on 19-20 June.

For the Carnival, we’re pleased to announce that FEI-3 international course designer Michael Haese will be on board, freshly returned to Australia after designing courses in the USA. Michael has previously designed for Southside and Geraldton’s Championship shows.

Look for SRSJC’s Autumn Indoor Jumping Carnival programme and online entries  at http://www.globalentriesonline.com.au in early May.

2016 SRSJC Organising Committee

SRSJC Chair Suzanne McGill announced new committee members Matilda O’Connor and Junior Member Grace Fuchsbichler to this year’s SRSJC organising body. “It’s wonderful having Matilda fills the spot opened by the recent sabbatical request by Jessamy Walsh while she completes her nursing studies,” said Suzanne. “Adding Grace to the newly formed position of Junior Committee Member and having younger senior members like Matilda means that we’re grooming the next generation of showjumping organisers from an early point so that they’re ready to take over when the time is right.”

“Our committee members, who include riders, coaches and administrators, bring a broad wealth of experiences from within and outside the equestrian industry that really contribute to our events,” commented Suzanne, who – along with Les Bunning and Gail Hellier – is a founding member of the club, which was launched in 2008.

2016 SRSJc Organising Committee:

Suzanne McGill (Chair), Gail Hellier (Treasurer), Emma Isbister (Secretary/Social Media), Les Bunning (Riders’ Rep), Andrea Fuchsbichler (Entries), Chelsea McInnes (Prizes & Entertainment Coordinator) Sarah Isbister (Web Coordinator), Nadia Gronow (Helper Coordinator), Nanette Hollis (Sponsorship Co-Coordinator), Matilda O’Connor, Grace Fuchsbichler

SRSJC’S 13 MARCH 2016 SHOW ROSE ABOVE THE HEAT

Wow, what a way to kick off our first event of the year! Our riders and their supporters stayed positive, persevered in the heat and battled extensive road closures to make it a super show with great jumping and exciting new partnerships! There’s so much to look forward to this year…

Kevin Tully’s courses rode beautifully on Brookleigh’s fabulous indoor surface. Huge thanks to our competitors, their helpers, our officials, club helpers and committee members and to our wonderful sponsors whose generous support helps us run our shows and reward our riders.

A New Owner for Brookleigh’s Show Jumping and Eventing (Cross Country) facilities

We’re excited….!

Brookleigh’s cross country course and outdoor arena have recently changed hands to a new equestrian owner who will actively continue the ongoing use of these exceptional facilities.

Near-term refurbishment plans include re-surfacing and enlarging the outdoor arena; improving the limestone road surfaces; purchasing new jumping equipment; adding a toilet/shower block and a protected officials’ area at the outdoor arena; maintaining and improving the cross country area. SRSJC’s April and August events will be held in the outdoor arena this year. Click on ‘About Us’ on the toolbar for information on our 2016 fixtures.

Please contact the new owner, Gavin, at rglow@tpg.com.au for further information and to book the outdoor arenas and cross country course for individual training, training days, shows, clinics, and lessons. He’s also keen to hear from everyone regarding ideas!

Note…. While Brookleigh’s outdoor equestrian facilities have been sold, SRSJC’s long-time patron, Nikki Harwood, will be continuing business as usual with the indoor arena – where SRSJC’s March, May and June fixtures will be held in 2016.
