REDUCE YOUR RISK

As with a car, the decisions of the driver (rider), the condition of the car (horse) and the road you drive on (XC course) make a safe and successful trip (XC round).

Equestrian Australia (EA) with the support of the EA Making Eventing Safer Fund, State Branches and Organising Committees have invested heavily in making the road safer (XC course) with compulsory frangible devices, sloping shoulders on square fences and officials’ education.

Most importantly it is you, the rider, like a car driver, that will have the biggest contribution to safe XC rounds. Find out more by reading our Athlete Risk Management Resource HERE.
