What is the benefit of registering with EA to access insurance?

EA Coach insurance includes Personal Accident Insurance, Public Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity insurance. The cost of this insurance via Equestrian Australia is an annual flat rate which is exceptionally competitive and takes advantage of the economies of scale which are available through Equestrian Australia.

On the other hand, coach insurance for a coach who is not registered via Equestrian Australia is rated based on the scale of the business activities of that coach and does not necessarily compare on a like for like basis to the coverage afforded to an EA Coach.

An example of this is as follows:

During the 2022/23 coach registration period, an EA Registered Coach would require coverage for their coaching activities (Personal Accident, Public Liability and Professional Indemnity). The annual cost of this was $262.75 for EA Coach Registration and $493.97 for EA Coach Insurance coming to a total of $756.72.

Comparatively, if the coach was not accredited and registered with EA, the Public Liability Insurance alone for coaching and agistment activities would cost in excess of $1,000 plus charges. This would not include any Personal Accident or Professional Indemnity insurance.
