Elements and performance criteria

Element 1

Design a showjumping course according to ESNZ rules.

    Range 11-13 numbered obstacles, 1.4 to 1.6 metres height, three doubles or one

    double and one treble.

Performance criteria

    1.1 Obstacles are placed and arranged in the arena to provide the horse with a fair

    opportunity to jump the obstacle with rhythmic forward free flowing movement.

    1.2 Obstacles are placed with varying distances between related obstacles and

    combinations while remaining within ESNZ distance requirements and the

    ability of the field.

    Range long, short, half stride distances; straight lines, curved lines.

    1.3 Obstacles are sited to allow horse maximum opportunity to jump according to

    terrain and topography.

    Range inviting first obstacle, not into sun, obstacles not sited near

    distractions, attractive, well dressed, in/out gate.

    1.4 Design incorporates features which test the ability of the horse and rider

    combination.

    Range placement of spreads versus verticals, varied use of ground lines,

    obstacle colours, open spaces in face of obstacles.

    1.5 Jump off obstacles are incorporated into the course plan according to jump off

    conditions and ESNZ rules.

    Element 2

    Assess an existing showjumping course, Table A, 1.4 to 1.6 metres in height.

Performance criteria

    2.1 Assessment of placement of obstacles determines balance, distances between

    related obstacles, and potential for horse to maintain rhythm of jumping and

    forward, free flowing movement.

    2.2 Assessment of siting of course determines suitability according to terrain,

    topography, proximity, and location of distractions.

2.3 Assessment of equipment used in course determines safety.

    Range capped pipe stands, broken equipment; hang, fill, and poles fall

    freely.

    2.4 Assessment of the course determines level of difficulty according to standard of

    horse and rider combination.

    Range distance, colour, changes of direction, obstacle fill, jump off,

    ground line, placement of rails within obstacle, amount of spread,

    vertical height, technical standard.

Please note

    Providers must be accredited by NZQA, or an inter-institutional body with delegated authority for quality assurance, before they can report credits from assessment against unit standards or deliver courses of study leading to that assessment.

    Industry Training Organisations must be accredited by NZQA before they can register credits from assessment against unit standards.

    Accredited providers and Industry Training Organisations assessing against unit standards must engage with the moderation system that applies to those standards.

    Accreditation requirements and an outline of the moderation system that applies to this standard are outlined in the Accreditation and Moderation Action Plan (AMAP). The AMAP also includes useful information about special requirements for organisations wishing to develop education and training programmes, such as minimum qualifications for tutors and assessors, and special resource requirements.
