Officials Education Pathway & Resources

How to become an ESNZ Jumping Official

ESNZ Jumping is committed to the development of all officials.  Well trained and competent officials are a key component of the on-going success and development of our sport.

To be an official at a competition technical knowledge alone is not enough. It is also necessary to communicate positively and clearly while always maintaining fairness and consistency.

You don’t have to know every rule, but you must be able to find them easily.

All the information you need to know about becoming an official within the sport and working your way up through the pathway.

Officials Seminars 

Technical Seminars will be held this year via zoom video conference.  We encourage you to join with others in your area if you do not have access to reliable internet and a device.  You can use zoom on any device that has a camera and speaker/microphone.  E.g. i-pad, laptop, any smartphone.  If you are unsure about your device, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can advise you.

Judges and Stewards Seminars are limited to 10 attendees to keep them interactive.

Course Design Seminar is for all Course Designers – no limitation on numbers attending.

You will receive papers via email prior to the seminar – including updated rules and test questions.

Show Hunter officials are encouraged to attend a Steward Seminar.
