As of the 1st of January 2017 all newly registered horses with the FEI must obtain a national passport from ESNZ prior to registration.
Expressions of interest are called for the position of HoY Convenor for the Show Hunter section.
New Zealand now has eight Jumping Course Designers eligible to be promoted to FEI Level 1 after running a successful upgrade course in Hastings last week, under the guidance of International Course Director Werner Deeg from Germany, and New Zealand's Level 3 Course Designer Gerrit Beker.
Nine National Course Designers attended the six day long course, including one candidate from Australia, and all passed with high marks, with Werner commenting it was the best Level 1 course he has ever directed - a high standard by all.
Those who are attended were Mark Brennan (AUS), Tony Hutton, Chris Rogers, Sarah Ching, Danielle Watts, Marcus Rose, Wayne Bragg, Glenn Brooks and Susanne Wright
