Beyond the Barriers

Beyond the Barriers

Returning again to Equidays, the Dunstan Ex-Factor is a competition that showcases Thoroughbreds who have had less than 12 months sporthorse schooling since retiring from their intended career on the racetrack.

This competition is organised by Beyond the Barriers NZ which is a non-profit organisation with a purpose to promote the versatility and suitability of retired racehorses as pleasure and sporthorses.

Selected Thoroughbreds compete in three of the six available classes and points accumulated across these classes determine the overall winner of Dunstan Ex-Factor. The classes provide riders with an opportunity to show a range of skills including jumping, dressage and freestyle which makes for great viewing for spectators.

WHO: Thoroughbreds with less than 1 year of sporthorse schooling prior to Equidays 2019

WHAT: You will compete in one compulsory class and three optional classes:

  • 4-Bar
  • Dressage
  • Freestyle
  • Paced & Mannered
  • Showhunter
  • Working Hunter
