CORONA VIRUS UPDATE
The WEDU Committee and CNC 2020 Sub-Committee met on Monday 16th March to discuss how the Corona Virus situation will affect the 2020 CNC and any action that we need to take.
The CNC 2020 will be postponed.

Any decision made will consider the health and well-being of all potential CNC participants.
- Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding this situation.
The Cross-National Camp and Cup was initially held in 2018. The event was created to celebrate and foster international friendships and collaboration between people who share a love of working equitation. The first CNC was held in Oregon, USA in July of 2018. The second CNC took place in Alberta, Canada in August of 2019. The third CNC will be held in Worrigee, New South Wales, Australia in October of 2020.
The week long event starts with 3 day camp providing instruction and educational experiences all related to W.E.. Coaches and judges are brought in from around Australia and overseas to share their knowledge and expertise. This is followed by a four phase competition held at the end of the week to put in to practice everything learned during the camp.
Participants from all nations are welcome, and organizers work to locate "loaner horses" and host families to welcome the international visitors for the event. Many volunteers are needed to run this event and to welcome our international visitors. If you would like to volunteer please contact the WEDU Inc. Committee via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CNC 2020 has a Facebook community on CNC Down Under 2020 to begin your journey. If you have a horse you may be able to loan or share with an international rider please visit this page for more information.
Worrigee Equestrian Common is located near the small village of Worrigee on the picturesque South Coast of New South Wales Australia. The 2020 CNC Camp and Cup will be held here from the 6th - 11th October 2020.
Julie Alonzo one of the founding organisers of this event explains the philosophy behind the CNC -
"One thing to keep in mind is that the CNC, by intentional design, is more about international relationships and building bridges between people from different areas of the world who share a common love of horses than it is about a competition.
This is why we have specifically chosen NOT to structure it as a Championship, but rather to put the focus on the camaraderie, fun, and true spirit of the sport that brings so many people to WE.
Championships have their place, for sure, but they have a different purpose and focus. The CNC is all about sportsmanship, horsemanship, supporting one another, sharing ideas and cultures, and having fun while doing so."
