Competition vs Training - What Medical Services Do You Need?
Extract from PCT Handbook - Section 8: Eventing Addendum
Medical Services at Competitions and Training Days with a cross country component
For the purpose of determining whether full EA medical services as per the EA eventing rules are required to be present where there is a cross country and showjumping component on the day, the following should be used:
A Competition is defined as an event where entries are taken, the event is scored and placegetters are named.
For example - ODE; Hunter Trial; Hickstead; Mini ODE; Short course event; Combined Training event which includes Cross Country and Showjumping or any variation where there is a cross country component.
There are two levels of competition, each have different medical service requirements:
Competition which includes Grade 3 heights or above
These competitions are run under EA Eventing rules regardless of the grade and therefore require full EA medical services for the cross country and showjumping phases.
Competition which includes Grade 4 heights or below only
These competitions are run under EA Eventing rules but with reduced medical coverage. These competitions require a registered first aid provider with a minimum of one paramedic for the cross country and showjumping phases.
A Training Day is defined as a day where a coach is present and responsible for a rider or group of riders. The day is not scored and there are no placegetters. The riders are under the guidance of a coach at all times. If the club chooses to include EA riders, the coach must be an EA qualified coach. If only PC riders are allowed, the coach can be either a PC Level 1 coach or an EA coach.
These training days require a nominated Senior First Aider or First Aid Provider to be present for the duration of the day.
