NZPCA - CHRISTMAS Close - 23 December 2022 - 4 January 2023

First Start™ 

An Introduction to  Competitive Riding

These Regulations are effective from October 2015 and have been introduced to meet the growing needs of our young and inexperienced pony club members.  

They provide opportunities for new/inexperienced riders to practise the necessary   skills in a safe competition environment. 

Equestrian Helmet Tagging Policy Update 2017

​​​​​​​This policy supercedes the 2016 update, with the major changes being the removal of references to the blue tag and the EN1384 standard, both of which are  now obsolete.

Please note the First Start Regulations have been updated in August 2021.  You can find these regulations below.
