ESNZ Jumping is pleased to announce that we have received dispensation from the ESNZ General Regulations to run Introductory classes at all our registered, calendared ESNZ Jumping & Show Hunter competitions. Introductory classes will apply to all Jumping & Show Hunter classes for horses and ponies at a height of 80cms and under. What does this mean? Riders’ will be able to compete on a free Community Membership in these Introductory classes and equines will pay the $5 Jumping levy. Therefore, it will be a total of $5 plus entry fee to compete in any Introductory class 80cms and under at a registered, calendared ESNZ Jumping/Show Hunter show. Jumping is now aligned with all other disciplines within ESNZ.
