Hello Members,

The Board is excited to announce the ABHA will  be sending out in the next few weeks, information for affiliates to apply to run one of the seven - 

"2021 State Championships", later this year. 

The State events are not replacing the National Finals in September and the Board is actively planning this event. 

Please remember all events are governed by COVID-19 restrictions and we all must comply with our new normal way of life.



RULE BOOK AMENDMENTS, Sun 7th Feb, 2021

Please be advised the ABHA Rule book has been updated with the following rules. These Rules are effective immediately.

AFFILIATES

1. Affiliates can only retain a maximum of 30% of the entry fee to cover club expenses, trophies and administration fees.

Any Event with a minimum of $300.00 posted prize money, (including juniors) affiliates can retain up to 40% of the entry fee.

*Please note affliates can retain a lower % if they wish.

CLASSIC EVENTS

1. Open to horses 4, 5 and 6 years.

2. Can be run over 1, 2 or 3 rounds.

3. Affiliates have the option to allow a competitor to roll over their time from a classic event into a divisional barrel race, provided they are run on the same size course.

4. Any Classic with $500 prize money or more will count as a qualifying classic round for the ABHA Finals.

5. A horse’s age will be calculated based on a year starting 1 August every year (Horses Birthday). For example, a horse born any time between 1 August 2019 and 31 July 2020 turns one (1) year old on 1 August 2020 and so on.

Rule 25 - Dress rules – Members competing at ABHA affiliated events must wear suitable long sleeved shirt, hat/ current Australian Standard’s helmet, (No Caps) boots and jeans in the arena at all times. They must be neat and presentable.

Rule 26 - Safety helmets – Junior or juvenile competitors under 18 years of age, must wear a Current Australian Standard’s approved helmet with the chin strap securely fastened when mounted and competing. Adult members that choose to wear a helmet must wear a Current Australian Standard’s approved helmet.

Helmets worn must conform with one of the current approved safety standards:

· Current American standards ASTM FI163 (2004a or 04a onwards) provided they are SEI marked, or SNELL E2001.
