Australian Horse Council Investigating Industry Insurance

The Australian Horse Industry Council has received funding to begin a process to help the industry with Public Liability Insurance (PLI). The group is developing a code of practice, implementation guides, risk management regimes, and an accreditation/registration process for a range of horse industry disciplines, including trail riding, horseback riding centers, and horse events. The code of practice will help clubs, small business operators, and equine tourism-related businesses with a tool to negotiate better PLI rates.

Those interested in participating in this project as part of a broad reference group are invited to submit their contact details, including an e-mail address, to project manager Julie Fielder at; or at PO Box 483 Plympton, SA Australia 5038; 618 8294 2460.
