Lakes and Craters international 3DE, on 6-9 December in Camperdown, Victoria, is the only major event left on the Australian 2008 equestrian calendar that definitely will not have "cancelled" stencilled across the programme.

Event organiser Barry Roycroft said this week: "While it's very disappointing that we won't be able to welcome any NSW or Queensland horses and riders, we're still confident of having a great event with full fields across the competition.

"Lakes and Craters is the traditional finale event on the Australian equestrian calendar and this year we hope it will close a frustrated and frustrating season on a positive note and have us all looking forward to a full 'come one, come all' calendar in 2008."

All entrants must sign the EFA waiver form relating to equine influenza and the OC will follow bio-security procedures similar to those that Werribee Equestrian Centre has in place for its eventing and showjumping weekends.
