                          As of 3 November 2008



A horse or pony shall be deemed a newcomer if it has not been exhibited at any show or
competition under saddle in any discipline* before the preceding 1 November 2008.
(*includes but is not limited to show jumping, dressage, eventing, novelties, affiliated
and unaffiliated classes).
Horses are to be ridden in a snaffle bridle.
The newcomer championship is an incentive scheme for young horses starting out
under saddle in their first season to compete on a level playing field. The nomination
fee is $22-, $20- of which will be pooled as a sweepstakes to be won at the newcomer
class at that years’ Horse of the Year Show. The monies will be divided as follows –
winner 65%, second 25%, and third 10%. There will not be a further entry fee for the
class at the horse of the year show.
Newcomers must not have been competing under saddle before 1st November 2008.

Nominations close 17 August 2009.
Applications to obtain newcomer certification can be made to the EFA saddle horse
committee at any time throughout the year. The application form and statutory
declaration agreeing to the rules and regulations as set out by the EFA saddle horse
committee must be signed. This forms a legally binding document.
There is no restriction on horses being shown in the open ring at the Horse of the Year
Show or any other shows during the year.
A horse or pony may only be able to compete in the EFA horse of the year newcomer
class once.
The EFA horse minimum age limit applies (3 years). 1st of August is taken as the
common birthday for all horses.
Each month, the saddle horse committee will review applications. Once passed and
considered suitable, the committee will issue a certificate.
Ponies in the 12.2 and under class must be ridden by a child 14 or under, as in the open
class.
Genuine scratchings must be officially notified to receive a refund and possibly be re-
eligible for the new comer class the next year if the horse has not been shown before the
31st of October 2009.
