SEDA AGM was held on Monday 6th November, 2017.
 A number of office bearers were returned for a second year. This included president Kristine Hancock, secretary Ellen Linke, and treasurer Diane O'Leary.
 In other positions, Michelle Linke was elected vice president, while Kris and Ellen will share the role of events coordinator, and Ellen and Michelle will share the media/publicity responsibilities.
 Other committee members are Andrea Riedel-Carrison, Steph Cooper, Lesa Van Uitert and June Whitehead.
 Life member Gill Mitchell stepped down from the committee after being on it for many, many years, while Robyn Parker and Jessica Herring also left the committee.

 We must express a big thank you to those outgoing committee members, who have all put many hours of hard work into our club.

HRCAV Information:


  1. 9.1.  Registered Club colours must be worn at official events. Club colours must be worn on the rider’s upper body with the Club name or logo displayed on the upper body garment and/or saddle blanket. The requirement to display the Club name or logo is waived for Led classes.

    All Clubs whose members wish to compete at Official events must register two main colours (these are navy blue and sky blue for SEDA). The main colours are to be used as the principal colour/s of the uniform and may be interchanged. At the discretion of the Club, other colours may be used in trimming, logos or similar embellishment.

    Subject to rule 9.2, a neutral or light coloured shirt or saddle blanket (not registered as a Club colour) may be worn as part of the uniform. In hot weather, the Ground Jury may allow competitors to remove outer layers of clothing and ride in shirt sleeves. If a riding vest is worn, the length of the vest must not extend past the buttocks. Shirt/skivvies worn under a vest must be of a contrasting colour. Hacking or riding jackets or any items of clothing designed to replicate a hacking/riding jacket are not permitted to be worn at Official events.

  2. 9.2.  It is every Clubs’ responsibility to ensure that their members present themselves as neatly and professionally as possible. It is recommended that each Club have specific rules as to what they will allow their members to wear when representing their Club at Official events.

  3. 9.3.  An approved equestrian helmet with a fixed harness MUST be worn at all times whilst mounted. The required standards for helmets at HRCAV competitions will be:

    AS/NZS 3838 (AU), ASTN F1163 (USA), PAS 015 (UK) and VG1 (Europe). The EN 1384 (Europe) standard is only acceptable for helmets manufactured prior to 2016.

    Long or short riding boots MUST be worn at all times whilst mounted. Enclosed footwear with ripple soles, including running shoes, may be worn in Led classes.

The SEDA club colours are Navy Blue, Light Blue and White
