COVID-19 RECOVERY AND BEYOND


COVID-19 RECOVERY AND BEYOND

To all of our Members, Clubs, Volunteers, Officials and Supporters

We understand there are questions about what will happen when memberships are due for renewal on 1 July 2020.

We want all equestrians across NSW to know that we understand the angst, frustration and in many cases financial hardship that Covid-19 has caused you. The Equestrian NSW Board appreciates the impact of you not being able to fully participate in equestrian sports so far this year and remains committed to protecting the health and safety of our equestrian community as we recover from this horrible pandemic.

Since the start of 2020, the bushfires and then Covid-19 have prevented Equestrian NSW members from competing. Recognising this, we’re working through options to make it up to you. We don’t have all the information we need yet (eg insurance fees for FY2021), so will make an announcement by 29 May 2020.

It is currently unknown when equestrian competitions will be allowed to re-start and what conditions might apply. In response, ENSW has been working with our government agencies towards having risk management plans that organising committees can use to manage their events when we can start back up, hopefully not too far away. We’ve also purchased event sanitisation packs that will be provided to clubs free-of-charge.

We understand the profound effect that Covid-19 has placed on us all, emotionally, mentally and financially. Let’s continue to look after each other, be kind, stay safe and get through this.

If we can help, please call the Equestrian NSW office on 9620 2660 or email [email protected].
