Please see below report from SAEF regarding the OGM that was held on 13 October 2018.

The annual SAEF OGM was held this past weekend. The meeting was attended by the SAEF EXCO, all 9 Provincial Federation Presidents as well as 14 of our 17 Discipline Associations.

The main item on the agenda was the 2019 Budget and the SAEF membership fees. Many points of view were expressed, resulting in four proposals being tabled. Ultimately consensus was reached after a vote was taken. The fees and early payment discounts as set out below were thus accepted by Council.

                                    2019 Annual Subs (Fees are inclusive of VAT)

Non-FEI           Junior              575-00  (R500 plus R75 VAT)

                        Senior              800-00  (R695-65 plus R104.35 VAT)

FEI                    Junior              625-00  (R543.48 plus R81.52 VAT)

                        Senior              850-00   (R739.13 plus R110.87 VAT)

For payments received by end December 2018, a 10% discount will be allowed; for payments received by end January 2019, a 5% discount will be allowed. Should payment not have been received by end February 2019, membership shall be considered lapsed.

Our sport is complex in that we have the SAEF as our National Federation, 9 Provincial Federations which serve as the representative offices of the SAEF in each of the provinces and, with equal standing in the composition of Council, we have 17 Discipline Associations (technically oriented) which include both FEI and non-FEI affiliates. The administration of such a Federation is, as can well be imagined, somewhat involved, especially when one takes into account the organizations both in South Africa and internationally to which the SAEF is affiliated.

The recognition by SASCOC and SRSA within the country, as well as by the FEI and all other international bodies to which the non-FEI Disciplines are affiliated, is of the SAEF as the only sanctioned controlling body of Equestrian sport in South Africa. The day to day running of such a complex model is quite onerous and a competent, experienced and effective team is required to ensure the desired result is achieved.

The Sports Act requires Sporting bodies to comprise Provincial Federations, Districts and Clubs. The SAEF is somewhat of a hybrid in that we also have our Disciplines connecting at both National and Provincial level to provide the technical expertise required for the correct running of the various Equestrian sports, especially with respect to the rules, officials, etc.

These DA’s have the same standing with the Provinces as far as representation in the SAEF is concerned. This has been condoned by SASCOC on a provisional basis and it is up to us all to make this system work as we feel it is best for our Federation.

The SAEF is therefore accountable to SASCOC and SRSA, not only in terms of the Constitution but also in terms of compliance with providing statistical and other information, application for national colours and numerous other matters. This, once more, requires permanent and consistent application.

The International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI) is the only international governing body for the equestrian sports disciplines of Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Endurance, Vaulting, Reining, Carriage Driving and Para-Dressage in the World. The SAEF is the only equestrian body in South Africa that is recognised by and affiliated to the FEI. Affiliation fees based on the number of registered athletes are paid to the FEI each year, hence the differential between FEI and non-FEI Discipline members.

The non-FEI Disciplines for the most part also have international affiliations which require administrative support and interaction from time to time and any participation in international events either within or outside of South Africa has to be sanctioned by the SAEF. In this manner, the SAEF motivates the awarding of colours for the Athletes and teams involved.

It has taken some time to develop the SAEF and its substructures into a functional model and the fees required to drive the necessary funding are spread across the member base accordingly. It is a mammoth task to ensure compliance as far as membership is concerned due to the three points of entry that currently exist, namely Clubs, Disciplines and the SAEF – obviously this would be made easier by having a comprehensive database system but this is not achievable in the short term.

The Disciplines have committed to ensuring that all their members are both club members as well as SAEF members before they are permitted to participate in competitions. This will go a long way towards using our office resources for their intended purposes rather than policing membership and would hopefully result in the long-term effect of increasing member numbers and reducing their burden accordingly.

From the members’ viewpoint, even though membership is mandatory, it is important to recognize that the real benefits are fundamentally the participation in sanctioned, organized sport. What this means is that our members can attend events with the knowledge that the underlying structures are in place to ensure aspects such as fair play, safety, competence of officials, etc can be assured by virtue of organizers adhering to what is effectively the jurisdiction of the SAEF. Improvement of standards through coach education is an important on-going project, as is the provision of comprehensive Veterinary Regulations ensuring the Welfare of the Horse.

It is difficult to identify every benefit but suffice to say, the SAEF is run on a very controlled basis and any generation of surplus through cost cutting is committed to reinvestment into the sport. It is also responsible for accessing Lotto and SRSA grants where possible.

The current SAEF EXCO, supported by Council, is committed to ensuring effective financial control with the ultimate benefit of all its members foremost in the pursuit of improvement and growth of Equestrian Sport in South Africa.

Kind regards

Adv Willem Edeling

SAEF President

SDRC letter to Showing


Dear Riders

 

We sincerely apologise for the going in the sand arena at our show on Saturday, this was entirely due to staff problems, which we have now addressed.  

 

We assure you that this situation will never happen again. Thanks to our new and functioning borehole you will see excellent footing in the sand arena from now on. 

 

We aim to have the best facilities in the Western Cape and we and look forward to seeing our members and riders back to take advantage of well managed grounds and arenas. 

 

Kind regards

WE HAVE WATER!!!!

From the Chairman, Sarah Arnot


The appeal continues

Dear Members

We have water! After drilling to 130M we have found water at 3000L per hour which is enough for our needs.

This is great news and it will transform the club as it means we can look after the arenas and hold shows throughout the summer.

We have other great plans for developing the club but first of all we need to pay for the borehole. Thank you so much to those members and friends of the club who have contributed already and to Drillco who drilled deeper than budget at their own expense to ensure that we found water.

Speaking to members this weekend I realized some of you haven’t contributed because you were concerned we might not find water. Now we have! And now we have to pay for it! So please, we have over R100,000 to raise and we need it now. If every member contributed we will easily reach our target and you will have the best club in the Cape!

Thank you in advance.
Sarah Arnot

UPDATE ON BOREHOLE AND FUNDRAISING!!

 

Great news! We have water!

 

Thanks to the generosity of our members we have successfully drilled down to water and we have a new functional borehole at the club. It's not a massive amount but its enough for our needs in the dry months and will make all the difference next summer. Huge thank you to DrillCo, who contributed to going as deep as necessary to find water.

 

The next step in the project is to install the pump, the electrics and the tanks.

 

Because we had fewer shows in the early part of the year, we are down on revenue. We still need to continue our fundraising efforts, to raise the final R120,000.  PLEASE if you were wondering whether you should contribute, now is the time to do so! Most members have given R1000 - R2000 to this effort. Some have given as much as R20,000 so please, give what you can!

 
 

 
 NOTICE OF A MEETING OF ALL THE STAKEHOLDERS OF DRESSAGE IN THE WESTERN CAPE PROVINCE
19.30PM  WEDNESDAY 16TH MAY, 2018
 BERGVLIET SPORTS CLUB, CHILDRENS WAY, BERGVLIET.

The recent dissolution of the Western Cape Dressage council has rendered the body as non-functional and as a result the organisation is not properly constituted to pass resolutions and take care of day to day matters which concern Dressage in the Western Cape.
In order to get the processes back on track, an urgent meeting is being convened at 19h30 on Wednesday the 16th of May at the Bergvliet Sports Club by the club representatives and the athletes representative in order to discuss and agree on what interim measures need to be put in place in order to rectify the present state of affairs and restore the organisation to a functional body. We have invited Pierre Hefer, the Dressage President to be present in order to assist with the process and the related queries.
All provincial discipline bodies such as Western Cape Dressage essentially compromise of the Provincial Club Representatives who in turn appoint a number of office bearers to give expression to the athletes’ wishes through the mandates that they carry by way of the individual club representative’s votes. Such resolutions as voted on by the Club Representatives then become the decisions of the provincial body.
Your participation in the meeting is vitally important as it is a planning and informational meeting and the discussions will be instrumental in determining our way forward and assist in dealing with your concerns.

The meeting is open to all stakeholders in Dressage in the Western Cape province, especially the athletes. All Club representatives are asked to be present.

Please confirm your attendance by sending an email to Michelle De Villiers Moreira This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  so that we can attend to  seating requirements

SDRC DRESSAGE 9 SEPTEMBER 2017

Please see the following communications from DressageSA IT department...entries for the show on 9 September will be extended to Wednesday 30 August!

Regarding the recent interruption of service related to the DSA On Line System failure, I am sending you this mail to further explain our position and provide some clarity.

Firstly, it must be noted that our IT strategy requires that we provide the best possible system in line with the funds available and budgeted for, at any point of time. Essentially membership fees and show entry fees in part, contribute to this budget and we understand that there is a need to keep these fees as low as possible. In terms of the IT strategy, this also determines the extent to which we can deploy and pay for infrastructure and pay for service providers to maintain the infrastructure which brings about some limitations. The cost of high availability vs fully redundant systems is exponential and we cannot possibly afford the latter and so we take a best effort approach.

Cost of High Availability explained:

DSA presently strive for 98% system availability which is calculated on a 365 day basis and allows for approximate downtime of 7.3 Days or 175 hours for unplanned emergencies, system patches, upgrades, maintenance and disaster recovery testing per year. To reduce this availability target to 99%, we would require additional infrastructure (including a replicated environment involving a live stand by failover server) as well as service providers with the correct skills and 24 hours and 7 days a week SLA’s which could cost at least five times the present budgeted amount.

Backup and Disaster Recovery Explained:

The most basic precaution against any disaster is a data backup which we perform on a daily basis and we also keep several versions separate to the live system. The data backup and restore function is however only one part of a disaster recovery. Should there be a system failure, the first issue is to get information related to the cause and extent of the failure as they can vary considerably from hardware failure, connectivity interruption, firewall issues, database and software corruption and several other issues as well as scenarios involving combinations of these failures. If there is for instance a hardware or a connectivity failure, then the disaster recovery requires that a new infrastructure be created and configured and brought on-line and only when this is done and tested, can the data be restored. The time taken for the evaluation of the problem as well as the planning an execution of an effective disaster recovery strategy is typically several days. At times, it pays to wait for a system failure to be restored rather than to start a recovery process as explained as it could be faster and much cheaper.

Service Providers Explained:

Outsourcing several IT functions is the norm in our type of organisation as the cost of employing full time specialists is not warranted. Unfortunately the skills required to maintain an infrastructure vs maintain software vs develop software vs manage disaster recovery are all very different and again, costs prohibit all these different specialists to be available on 24/7 SLA’s. Further with outsourced service providers in the IT industry, guaranteed response times are directly proportional to the charge out rate and so if you require a 2 hour max response time vs a same day or next business day response time, the rates can vary as much as four times and be subject to certain minimum monthly charges.

Our Outage over the last few days:

The DSA service interruption over the last few days was highly unusual and unique. The services were unavailable as a result of an infrastructure failure at our hosting centre (an Internet Solutions high availability data centre) which was not immediately evident as a scenario that required a total disaster recovery as well as the redeployment of a temporary fail-over environment. We were further reliant on service providers to inform us of the extent of the failure and these were only able to get us a system evaluation on Monday as the event was escalated from outage to serious over a weekend and their SLA did not provide for attention before Monday. We are presently busy with the full disaster recovery (including provisioning and migration to a stand-by server) which will take about 5 more days but we have at least made a temporary infrastructure available to accommodate the immediate and most urgent requirements. We ask all members who have entered any shows to please check their entries on line and if the entry is not showing on the system, to please re-enter and send us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Our Future Planning:

Essentially, we are not able to provide a considerably better solution in terms of High Availability nor better Disaster Recovery without incurring huge additional costs. We have however identified some areas where we can improve and will be concentrating on these once our recovery is completed. These measures include some changes to service providers as well as re-evaluation of our hosting environments as well as re-evaluation of our disaster recovery strategy in order to improve the turn-around time when we have complicated recovery scenarios as we have just experienced.

I apologise for the system downtime and the inconvenience that it has caused and thank you for your patience while we are in the recovery process. Also, a huge thanks to Judith Harrison and Sue Horne who have stepped up and not only assisted with the disaster recovery process which I assure you will take very many hours of their time which we had not planned for, but also and at the same time, fielding so many of your phone calls and emails which were not always that friendly and reflected your frustrations. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, we have also had recent data connectivity issues at the office, courtesy of Telkom as well as a power outage in Kyalami today. The rest of our week had better bring about some nice surprises.

We look forward to an improved IT system going forward.

Kind Regards,

Pierre Hefer

Notification from the SAEF for urgent attention and distribution

Dear Club Admins and Club Members

The SAEF would like to inform our members that we have terminated our contract with DesignLinks (Elixir Online System) with immediate effect.  The decision was not an easy one to make and was done with our riders’ and administrators’ best interest in mind. The original brief for our online system was to have a system which is practical, simple and easy to use for all involved. Although the Elixir system has undergone various upgrades, it still does not address the required needs of our members and is not user friendly as was agreed.

We are in the process of implementing a new data base soon.

Please note that we will forward you an Excel spreadsheet in the next few days, with all the members in your club that have registered up to the 8th of May 2017. For the time being, we have reverted back to the original registration form. (see attached) . Riders who wish to do their SAEF membership must please complete this form, make payment and email said form plus proof of payment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Members who have completed  their SAEF membership registration online(Elixir online system)  and paid their SAEF membership, need not reregister again.

We request that you please distribute this information to all your members

SAEF Membership Registration Form 2017

The SAEF would like to apologise for any inconvenience you may have experienced and will keep you up to date on a regular basis regarding new developments.

WC DRESSAGE AGM 11 FEB @ SDRC 12:30

The WC Dressage Committee is holding it’s AGM & SGM on the 11 February @ SDRC at 12H30 in the club house.

In order for us to have a quorum we need you to attend the meeting as the dressage representatives of your clubs: the SAEF guidelines stipulate that the Clubs have the voting rights at the SGM and the SAEF representative will run the voting process.

I have forwarded the Nomination forms to you but have included them here again as we desperately need new members to join the committee to ensure that Dressage continues to grow and be run effectively in the WC. To give you an idea of how things stand at present, 3 members are resigning from the committee: Anna Buchanan, President, Chanda Bailey, Judges & Officials, and myself as the Secretary. Janeese Silen, who held the Show Holding Bodies, CDE & Vice President Portfolios, resigned in July 2016.

This leaves us with just 3 members: Tjarla Norton, Acting Vice President & Development & Transformation; Melina Frey, Technical & Charles Manning, Financial & Treasurer.

Please will you actively canvas your members to join the committee and fill in and return the Nomination forms to me by no later than the 31 January 2017.

Please will you advise by return mail whether you will be attending the AGM & SGM on the 11th February.

Many thanks,
Penny

UPDATE ON MEETING WITH SASCOC ON JUNE 4TH 

Dear All

A successful meeting was held at SASCOC house on Saturday and was well directed by Mubarak Mohammed of SASCOC. I am sure SAEF will send out a detailed report, so I will just detail the areas that were decided on that affect SASJ.

  1. The purported suspensions of the 16 individual that took Marlene Du Plessis to court have been set aside. SASCOC confirmed the matter had nothing to do with SAEF. It was a matter between Individuals and a company.
  2. Any complaints of any nature relating to SASJ should be sent to SASJ by a SASJ member in writing.
  3. SASJ manages Show-Jumping, not external parties.
  4. We have a direct line of reporting to the FEI with a sidebar communication to SAEF.
  5. SASCOC will deal with any DA directly that does not perform as per sport charter, rather than tackling SAEF as a whole.

What this basically means is that we have been given the responsibility to manage Showjumping as a sport in SA,  from a club, provincial and national level and therefore directly responsible for reaching targets set by SASCOC, such as transformation targets, which are set according to the transformation scorecards. We can not pay lip service to transformation, it needs to be a core feature of our business plan going forward.

I will be looking at sitting with Lyna May of SANESA soon to discuss bringing an end to the disagreements. Very clear guidelines were laid out in the meeting on Saturday as to the parameters that each organization operates within and these need to be agreed on and implemented. 

Likewise I will gladly meet any individuals within SASJ who have vocalized various positions during the recent past so that each person may be heard. Where there are genuine issues, these need to be addressed and we move forward. Once this process has been completed, it will no longer be acceptable for anyone to seek to destabilize SASJ - complaints will be made via the correct channels so that they can be addressed appropriately. Once these meetings (SANESA and the one on ones) have taken place, Council will be informed for decisions to be made in finalization of these issues.

Together with Exco, we will be developing the business plan for SASJ going forward, including our transformation plan, which will be discussed by council and our stakeholders, before being implemented.

There have been a number of ugly events in the recent past - these are now behind us and structurally, we have the green light to prove that SASJ is a well run organization that gives the opportunity to every athlete to perform at their best.

I look forward to everyone's contribution to turning the opportunity that we have been given into a  huge success. 

Regards
Clem Des Santos

DEAR RIDERS

Please find herewith updated schedule for our Warm Up to the DSA Challenge which will now take place on SATURDAY 18TH JUNE with entries closing Thursday 9th June.

The original changed date to Wednesday 27th April will now fall away as we are still within the containment zone for AHS and no confirmation of when these boundaries will move so to be fair to everyone (in and out of the containment area) it has been agreed that our now will be help on Saturday 18th June instead.

The show at SDRC that was scheduled in the OMNIBUS for 18 June will be replaced by this show.

All competitors already entered in the SDRC Warm Up show will automatically be carries forward to the 18th June and this riders still wishing to enter may do so on the online system – entries close 9 June

Any competitor that has entered the orginal show and is now not going to compete on the 18th June, please contact Di Arnold This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange a credit

Thank you so much for understanding this difficult decision that has had to be made


Dear Riders

SDRC will not be able to run their Dressage Warm up show at SDRC this Saturday due to the current AHS outbreak and our venue being within the restricted containment area.

We propose the following

Move our show of Saturday 16 April 2016 to Wednesday 27th April 2016 (public holiday) PROVIDED the borders of the containment area are reduced by this date. We are hoping that the containment area will be reduced to 30 km from the site.  

Move the closing date for entries to this show to Tuesday 19th April – to enable riders to enter the show if they wish.

Riders who may find that this new date is not suitable for them or they may not be able to ride due to being in the containment area must please email Di Arnold on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that she can arrange a credit for you.

We will keep everyone updated regularly to updates that occur.

Kind regards

Eventing at SDRC 31 May and 1 June - FREE ESA Membership for 70 cms Training Classes and low entry fees!

The SDRC Schedule has just been posted on the WP Eventing website www.wpeventing.co.za.  If you haven't been eventing for a while, or you think you'd like to try it, why not come and ride over the fabulous new Graham Winn designed tracks at SDRC.  Designed to flow beautifully and encourage horses at every level, this is a new era for eventing at SDRC.

And the best news is that for 70 cms Training classes, joining Eventing South Africa is FREE!  You do need to register as a "recreational" rider, but there is no charge, and you don't need to register your horse.  Register at www.eventingsa.com

SDRC have really come to the party with incredibly low entry fees for the 70 cms class, so this is a great opportunity to try eventing, or to come back and remind yourself that it's the most fun you can have on a horse!


AHS outbreak, Wellington

There is a confirmed case of AHS on a farm in Wellington. Restrictions are now in force in the surrounding areas. Please see the attached notice from the State Vet, and a map of the area.

Please strictly follow the guidelines, for the sake of all our horses, but avoid the spread unfounded rumours, or panic!

Existing Members

As you are aware, from 1 August 2013 , the NEW SAEF structure comes into existence. SDRC have been accepted as a registered SAEF Club.

As an existing member of SDRC you will automatically remain a member of our club under the new structure and the benefits that you enjoy at the club will remain.

You will be required to register with SAEF (you and your horse) and once you have your registration number, you will need to send SDRC this number as proof of SAEF membership.

You will also need to join the different disciplines that you will be competing in separately. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of the club and look forward to great events in the future.
