Equestrian Australia supports the release of the Federal Government’s Return to Sport Toolkit and continues to work with the Federal Government, Australian Institute of Sport and Sport Australia on a safe and staged return to training and competition.

We are currently developing and embedding our sport specific guidelines – ‘Resuming Equestrian Training and Competition Activities in a COVID-19 Environment’ – into the Return to Sport Toolkit with a draft being considered later this week.

Our aim is to release these guidelines by 11 June and are designed to complement those that have been published or are being developed by each State Branch which reflect local regulations.

The health and safety of our people and horses remain our priority as we work together as a broader community in order to navigate through these tough times.
