Grant Mackie has offered his property, Tutukau Lodge, for a training wekkend over the period of Equifest in Taupo.
This is a great opportunity for riders to get to Equifest to have a look and get your horse away for the weekend.

Show Approval Update
Unfortunately the difficult decision has been made to cancel the CPCHC Show at McInnes Arena on January 3 & 4.
This decision was reluctantly made due to cattle unavailability.
2020 National Finals
Attn riders wanting to compete at the 2020 National Finals in December:
2019/2020 National Finals:
As per the rulebook, to be eligible to compete at this upcoming 2020 National Finals show, competitors have until the closing date of this show to pay the required 2019/20 memberships to both the NZCHA and an affiliated club if they have not already been paid.
Due to Covid-19 the closing date of the National Finals show is the 16th of November.
It is also a requirement that all competitors are current financial members of the NZCHA for the 2020/21 season for insurance purposes.
Competitors entering both the 2020 National Finals and North Island Finals - if you enter both the shows on Saturday, please pay the amounts on the show approvals and your cattle hire for the North Island Finals will be refunded to you following the show.
This is the simplest way for our treasurer to keep track and we appreciate your understanding!
Please note that the North Island Finals is being run as a part of Show Day 1 of the National Finals. You pay 2 entries, have 2 line ups and have one run.
Due to Covid-19 and quarantine restrictions we will not be able to bring an Australian judge in for our 2020 National Finals.
However, we are very excited to announce that Grant Mackie will be judging this years show!!
Grant will be the solo NZ judge for this show to allow all our members to compete.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
