A highlight of the horse competitions is the Showjumping Competition, which in 1898 was one of the most spectacular attractions held in the Main Arena. Watch in awe as these amazing animals jump to new heights and wow crowds with their athletic feats.
Today, the Showjumping Grand Prix in particular is a favourite with horse lovers and attracts a large crowd.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR 2018 EXHIBITORS
It is a requirement that all horses entering the Brisbane Showgrounds must be Hendra vaccinated in accordance with the RNA’s Horse & Arena, and Veterinary, Biosecurity & Animal Welfare Committees regulations.
You are now able to enter the competition without your horse having the “Protected” status on the Zoetis Hendra Vaccination Register.
If your horse does not appear on the register as “Protected” as at 9am on the 1st August, your entry will be disqualified with no refund of entry fees.
Therefore the onus is on the exhibitor to ensure:
- The correct microchip number(s) are entered when entering the competition;
- Your veterinarian has updated the Zoetis Vaccination Register in a timely fashion after administering the Equivac HeV vaccine;
If your horse does not have the “Protected” status as at 23 July you will be contacted by email advising you to rectify otherwise your entry will be disqualified.
