Entering events:

All Woodhill Sands events will now only be found on the Woodhill Sands website.  We will have a new on-line entry system that we are currently developing that will make entering events at Woodhill Sands super easy.
For now for small training events (mini odes etc) please use the form below and submit if you have problems with this PDF you can simply email your entries to angela@woodhillsands.co.nz .  Entries for the registered shows (GP SJ Show and the Dressage & Show Hunter festivals should be made on your ESNZ competitor entry forms (available to download from ESNZ)
Get your registrations current now - there is always a backlog around September with everyone wanting to register for the season at the same time, no current registration will mean you cannot jump in series classes, points for HoY wont count and you will need a casual registration of $20.00 plus.
Remember riders, entries should be accompanied by entry fees, with on line entering payments for shows are getting later and later, riders entering, being drawn and not showing up have increased and debt collecting is becoming a real issue for many groups and clubs.  When you make an entry payment is required by Close of Entry.  If you are unable to this the shows secretary should be contacted.
