From the CEO

As we head into the last quarter of what has been a very busy year, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the achievements and milestones we have reached together as an equestrian community.

Aussies success at FEI Driving World Championships for Pairs

The Australian Team did us proud with Tor Van Den Berge and Andrew Damsma competing in France to give Australia 6th place overall.

Jumping Team 2nd in Challenge Cup in Barcelona

A brilliant performance from our Jumping Team who took on some very strong nations to take out second place in the Challenge Cup – at the FEI Jumping Nations Cup Final in Barcelona. 


EA’s incident report Form 08 is mandatory to report all incidents, that occur at an EA affiliated equestrian activity and must be completed within 24hrs. Form 08 must be completed by the Medical Service Provider (MSP) in attendance.
