2013 -2014 Season 

On Sunday the 30th June, BHPC will be holding an Oz Trec competition.
It is a fun event that contains aspects to please most drivers. Its not just for CDE or pleasure drivers, novice or experianced drivers or horses/ponies. No one gets eliminated!
Everyone can join in with the fun.
We will also be holding an activity during the afternoon, on the day before, perhaps a navagational drive or similar.
Camping is free, so come down to Geelong and make a weekend out of it.
Lots of people have been asking about Trec, so make sure you come to the event to learn about it, test your skills and most importantly have a great day/weekend!
These are the sections of Oz Trec
Map room
We’ll put up a large course map that you can study and copy if you wish. The map will prepare you not only to follow your route (it’s easy) but also where to expect walk or trot sections. (They’re marked on course, too.)
Safety check
Each turnout will be reviewed for safety prior to starting on courses. Plan for a cross-country drive. What would you take if you were to be out all day, prepared for anything? Something for the weather? Something for safety? Something for comfort and welfare? For you or your horse? Both? You’ll lose points for unsafe or inappropriate outfitting.
Cross-country drive
Cross-country drive and control of paces will take place over a prescribed course of approximately 5 kilometres, journeying across fields and roads. You will be expected to follow the route and cover the distance at a predetermined speed, coming in as close to target time as possible. There will be a mandatory walk section and an “any pace” section that is timed for a working trot. You'll lose points for incorrect pace or for time over or under the optimum time allowed. Paces will be different for different sized horses.
Skills Course
This will introduce elements you may find along any trail drive, with some added twists. We will not time this section, but it is aimed for walk or trot. No cantering – just keep moving along the course at a comfortable pace. Abilities can vary greatly in this section. There is something for everybody here. Can't do one of them? Just pass it by......a few points lost, but no eliminations. Things you might find could include hills, bridges, reinback, serpentines, circles, standing quietly, driving straight, driving over stuff. Nothing is meant to startle or scare horses or drivers.
The entry form is on the ACDS Vic Branch website.
Feel free to ask on here or email me if you have any questions. (nicole.allen@hotmail.com.au)
We look foward to seeing you there!
