Welcome to the new Home of Show Jumping in South Africa

We are about to embark on a landmark journey for Show Jumping in South Africa.

From the 1st of August 2013, the SAEA will cease to exist and all of the SAEA disciplines will stand on their own as independent Discipline Associations. The Jumping National Technical Committee will become South Africa Show Jumping (SASJ) and will be a constitutional member of the South African Equestrian Federation (SAEF), as will all of the SAEA disciplines. There are 6 other equestrian codes who are existing members of the SAEF.
This change will have a significant impact on all equestrian athletes in South Africa and it is imperative that show jumping enthusiasts are aware of the change and the new structure.

We have drawn up a constitution and business plan in best interest of our discipline going forward. These documents are attached herewith for your information and feedback. We have created a fee structure that is realistic in order for us to deliver on our objectives, as well as to be able to offer maximum support to the provincial discipline committees.

A concise document detailing the new structure is available on the SAEA website. All members have to join a club rather than a Provincial Body, and register with the SAEF. You will also join the Discipline Association in which you wish to compete. If you join at the 1st August 2013 all of your points and horse’s performance history will be carried forward into the new structure.

Kind Regards

Bob Neill
(SASJ Chairman)

Restrictions Announced - African Horse Sickness

 The Chief Director of Veterinary Services in the Western Cape, Dr. G. Msiza has announced that restrictions have been placed on all direct horse movements to the Western Cape African Horse Sickness (AHS) Control Area from all other provinces, with immediate effect.

These restrictions have been instituted due to the increasing number of reported and suspicious cases of AHS in the rest of South Africa. Thus far this season we have already had 34 confirmed or suspect cases of which 22 have died. Due to persistent high rainfall in the rest of the country the numbers of cases has increased dramatically and are also occurring earlier than in previous years.

Horse owners are thus strongly discouraged from attempting to move horses from anywhere in the Infected Zone into the Western Cape African Horse Sickness Controlled Area as the risk of transmitting the disease is increasing daily. An outbreak in the AHS Controlled Area can potentially result in the death of many local horses as well as place our export status in jeopardy again, possibly leading to a further 2 year ban by the European Union and causing major financial and horse losses to the equine industry as a whole.

This notice is issued in accordance with the Animal Diseases Act 35 of 1984, Section 20 (c) (ii) and  Section 26 (1) (a) and (b).

The Western Cape Government erected African Horse Sickness signage boards on all major access routes into the Western Cape Province, reminding road users they are entering an African Horse Sickness Free Area. The Provincial Traffic Authorities are working together with Department of Agriculture officials in monitoring the movement of horses into the Western Cape.

Your co-operation in assisting us to implement the movements controls as mentioned below, and thus potentially to prevent an outbreak of AHS in the Western Cape AHS Controlled Area is greatly appreciated.
