The Hastings Valley Showjumping Club is a Not For Profit Club providing showjumping competition and training for all ages and abilities. The Club assists in the promotion of Showjumping in the Hasting Valley Community. The Club is managed and operated by volunteers. The Club has a qualified course builder, experienced judges and volunteers to ensure for a safe and encouraging environment. The club is fully insured with Affinity Insurance, and has Qualified First Aid Officers, Nurses, Vets and a Doctor that are members. All profits raised go back into the club to help cover our annual insurance costs and to ensure that modern high standard equipment is used.
The Club facilitates a competition day on the first Sunday of every month at the Port Macquarie Pony Club Grounds at Hibbard Drive Port Macquarie NSW. The grounds are located right next door to the Hastings River and often a lovely North Easterly breeze off the water keeps horse and rider cool during the warmer summer days. Riders often swim their horses in the river after events are conducted during the summer months. The grounds are sand based and this helps with inclement weather leading up to events. The Club Championships will be held at Wauchope Showgrounds on the 17th and 18th October 2020.
The Club has a number of local business operators as Major Sponsors. This working relationship provides stability and support to the club financially, and the club promotes sponsors on their individual showjumping jumps and within the community on our Facebook Page. We have the services of a volunteer professional photographer who is an Honnary Member of the club. We post memorable photos on our Facebook page after each event. The Club has around 110 Riding Members and 125 Members all up. Our Showjumping days often attract families setting up chairs and blankets on the ground outside of the grounds to view the riders and their mounts competing on the day. We facilitate Showjumping with jumps starting with poles on the ground up to a height of 120cm.
