Shows and EI?

This is a question mainly for those from Australia who are dealing with Equine Influenza. Anyways, I was wondering does anyone know when shows, pony club exc. will be starting up again? I went to watch a Showjumping Competition a couple of weeks ago, but we had to go through a check where we had to wash our hands, boots exc. to get in. So does this mean shows will be starting again?

I'm in purple zone, and as far as I know things are starting back up again. There'll probably be less going on for a while as you need to get approval from DPI and EFA, but I am entered in dressage, SJ and shows from the end of Jan onwards.

Very slowly.

We have some major events coming up in Jan & Feb, but they have very strict biosecurity measures. ie keeping spectators away from the horses, limiting numbers, certificates of health etc.

I have heard that some riding/pony clubs are beginning to get organised but are waiting for the bio-security measure to be lessened.

We have a Pony Club camp on this weekend which is including 40+ horses, and i have competitions from the start of February on nearly everyweekend, but i live in victoria and no horses got affected so that may have something to do with it. I know they'll be very fussy about it because at Tafe we weren't allowed near the horses at all so we couldn't finish some units but im so glad comps are starting again!! How about everybody else??


live for the good times,, forget all the bad,, love him forever and you'll be always glad!! So hug like you mean it,, and kiss in the night,, smile when they cant see and never ever fight!!
