National Championships 2013 - Western Australia


The Pony Club Australia National Championships will be hosted by Pony Club Western Australia from 26th September - 2nd October 2013. The Championships will be held at the WA State Equestrian Centre at Brigadoon with all events being held on site.

When WA hosted the Championships in 2005 the horses were transported by a commercial carrier and the riders went by plane. PCAV State Council is in the very early stages of planning and will post more information as it comes to hand.  Taking part in the Championships will be an expensive exercise but the experience gained will be immeasurable. 

Riders who would like to be considered for selection for the Victorian Team should start recording their performances on the performance records designed for each discipline.  It is important that each rider collect the information set out on the individual discipline record sheets so Selectors can compare performances. 


NMG Teams are selected via the squad selection weekend and Team selection weekend.
