Eligibility for TiES
To be eligible to compete in the TiES  National Competition your Thoroughbred must be registered with New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing and also with  Equestrian Sports New Zealand.  Your horse will need to be a Fully Registered ESNZ Horse, including having a Discipline Annual Start for the appropriate discipline.

Registration Process
If you previously registered with TiES prior to 2017/2018 you do not need to do this again. Only new horses need to complete the following registration process.

Please email the following details to: heidi@nzequestrian.org.nz

  • Name of ESNZ Registered Thoroughbred
  • Name of Sire and/or Dam 
  • Year of Birth
  • Colour and Sex

If you cannot supply both the Sire and Dam please provide one of the following:

  • Racing Name
  • Full Brand details

TiES Registration confirmation can take up to three weeks depending on the information supplied. Once confirmed you will be sent a TiES Passport where all your horse details can be recorded along with TiES points throughout the season.

You can start competing in eligible events once you have applied for registration but please be aware that if your horse is not a Registered Thoroughbred with NZTR then any points you gain will be invalid.

Please refer to each respective discipline “Competition Outline” for eligible classes.
