Officiating is a great way to be involved in our sport from grassroots through to international events.
All the information you need to know about becoming an official within the sport and working your way up through the pathway.
ESNZ Eventing seminars are open to all current Eventing Officials, (including Technical delegates, Course Designers, Stewards, and XC Judges). Riders, NZ Pony Club Officials and anyone else interested in becoming an Eventing Official are also welcome to attend. Please note there is no charge to attend these seminars.

This Guide is not just for course designers but is intended to support all Officials in understanding the cross country test and design of cross country courses. It is not a rule book nor is it a stand-alone document, rather it is to be used as a supplementary document alongside the official ESNZ Eventing documents and the ESNZ Eventing Officials Education programme.
At all National Short format events there is a Chief Cross Country Judge, plus one or two Assistant Cross Country Judges. These officials make up the Ground Jury for the event and they are in charge of the event, while it is in progress, and all final judgement decisions will be made by them.
This guide outlines the role and its responsibilities.
Helpful thought prompters for beginning Technical Delegates. A living document that can be added to as you develop your ‘own’ system.
