EA Supports National Safety Conference for All Horse Sports

The peak body for equestrian sports in Australia, Equestrian Australia, is welcomed as a sponsor of the first national safety conference for horse sports in February next year.

Hosted by Pony Club Australia and designed for all those involved in horse sports - decision makers, coaches, officials and participants, the attendees will have the chance to hear about current research and learn what rider and horse safety changes are being made already or are under consideration.

CEO of Equestrian Australia Lucy Warhurst said one of the guest speakers will be Roger Kane, EA’s National Safety Officer appointed in 2017. With Roger’s leadership and guidance, EA has been identifying, prioritising and implementing initiatives to improve safety across equestrian sport.

“Equestrian Australia is committed to being a world leader in Equestrian risk management and safety and welcomes the opportunity to support this forum and join with Pony Club Australia and HRCAV to share ideas to achieve that goal,” Ms Warhurst said.

As well as high profile guest speakers, there will be panel discussion sessions with industry experts on topics including safety of courses and gear, First Aid at events and grading riders for competition.

Registrations are open for the first National Safety Conference for Horse Sports in Melbourne on Saturday February 1, 2020.
