Tweed Valley Equestrian Group was founded in 1972 by a group of horse enthusiasts. It is a volunteer community group affiliated with Equestrian Australia (EA) QLD branch.
The group is made up of three areas: Dressage, Jumping and Hacking – we are always looking for new members who would like to run different competitions.
All the events are held at the Murwillumbah showground which has good stables and yards plus ample room for young horses to work without any pressure.
There are 6 dressage days (Associate & Official) and a hack show runs every year. They are advertised on www.nominate.com.au, this website, the EA website, Facebook and also in our newsletter. If you can volunteer time or have ideas for these events please contact us.
At the start of the year we try and hold a Fun Gymkhana with hack classes and then sporting events. It gives all age groups a chance to go and have some fun.
Club and participation days are open to TVEG members and EA registered riders. These days generally attract riders from surrounding clubs and riders who wish to compete but not under pressure of official or competitive events.
Official Days are open to all EA registered riders. These days attract a higher level of competitors and a higher standard of horses. Competitors come from Southern QLD and Northern NSW to the Mid North Coast of NSW. These events give riders the opportunity to obtain grading points and qualifying percentages to go onto State and National competitions.
October is home to the famous “Power of Pink Dressage”, an event that grows bigger every year. Last years event raised over six thousand dollars for Breast Cancer Research and was awarded “Community Event of The Year” by Tweed Shire Council. This years event will be held over two days which will include combined training and show jumping.
The 2017 committee is:
President Angela Beresford
Vice President Keighley Leeson
Treasurer Libby Bow
Secretary Stephanie Baker
Committee Kim Jackson, Geoff Baker and Jo Everus
Judges Coordinator Kim Jackson
These positions are filled every year at the Annual General Meeting, so if you would like to give any a try just come along to the meeting.
Thanks to our sponsors for great events in 2016
