Ambulance Cover and EA Member Insurance

Ambulance Cover
We thought that the start of the year would be a good time to check that everyone has an understanding of Ambulance cover in NSW as we have had some inquiries. Just to confirm in NSW Ambulance cover is not included on your utility bills or any other bills. Except for some coverage for those on health care cards and pension cards, the bill for sitting in, receiving treatment from or being transported by ambulance is the responsibility of the person receiving the treatment. It is not uncommon for a bill to be over $500.00 for a trip of under 1km. In order to avoid these exorbitant bills people in NSW need to either have private health insurance or ambulance only cover through a private health fund. While private health insurance may be too pricey for you, ambulance only cover is relatively cheap.

The club wishes to confirm that membership of Scone Show Jumping Club does not entitle you to cover provided by the EA member insurance. The club’s insurance through EA covers things like third party property damage and indemnity of the committee. We would encourage all our members that aren’t already EA members to consider whether you need to be.

Equestrian Australia Helmet Rule

From 1 January 2017 EA made changes to what helmets are approved for use at EA affiliated events (which is us). There are specific codes that need to be on your helmet for your helmet to be legal to use. EA has been clear that it is each competitors own responsibility to check that your helmet is compliant. Please don’t assume that because you bought a helmet recently or paid a lot for it that it will be legal to use. You need to look inside the helmet to find the tiny code. If you have an accident and your helmet isn’t compliant you may not be covered by your EA member insurance. This is what you need to look for:

EA General Regulations, Article 122.2: Dress and Salute, the following will apply:

Protective headgear must conform with one of the current approved safety standards:

  • Current Australian standard AS/NZ 3838 (2006 onwards) provided they are SAI global marked.
  • New Australian standard ARB HS 2012 provided they are SAI global marked
  • Current American standards ASTM FII63 (2004a or 04a onwards) provided they are SEI marked, or SNELL E2001.
  • Current British standard PAS 015 (1998 or 2011) provided they are BSI Kitemarked.
  • Interim European Standard VGI (01.040: 2014-12) with or without BSI Kitemark.

Please read carefully and if you don’t understand contact us for clarification.

Equestrian Australia Hot Weather Policy

Please view the Equestrian Australia Hot Weather Policy below.
Equestrian Australia Hot Weather Policy (pdf file)

Horses exercising and competing in hot environmental conditions can be affected by heat stress.
When environmental heat conditions are adverse, exercising horses require appropriate cooling measures to safeguard their welfare. The primary responsibility for the welfare of horses competing and exercising during hot weather lies with the rider of the horse. Riders must always take action to prevent, manage and treat heat stress in their horses. Event organisers are responsible for providing adequate facilities and information that riders need to safeguard the welfare of horses. Access to ice and cooling water during competition is a compulsory requirement that arises under certain environmental conditions…. READ MORE
