Thursday, 3 April 2014

QSEC and EQ recently held a joint Biosecurity Workshop in readiness for the upcoming season.  

The workshop covered topies including what is biosecurity, what are your responsibilities to your workers and volunteers, how to prevent a biosecurity incident and what to do should an incident occur.

The workshop included presentations by Trish Coward, Workplace Health & Safety, Fiona Thompson and Janet Hull from Biosecurity Queensland and Deb Rogers, a veterinarian well known to the equestrian community.  

Practical sessions included how to put on and remove PPE (presented by Judy Khor from 3M), an understanding what to look for at a venue to assist with biosecurity planning.  We also worked through what is required in your biosecurity plan.  Some standardised templates for a biosecurity plan and the horse health declaration developed by the Queensland Horse Industry Alliance were made available to attendees. 

Since there were a number or organisations that couldn't make the day, we have made available all the presentations for your information.

What is biosecurity and what does it mean for you, What are biosecurity risks, How do you manage risks, What to do it an incident occurs, How to manage biosecurity at an event - Fiona Thompson - Biosecurity Queensland

Your responsibility to employees and volunteers - Trish Coward - Workplace Health and Safety

It is our intention to hold an annual workshop at the beginning of each season so that we can keep the equestrian community informed of any changes over the course of the year. 

EQ would like to take this opportunity of thanking all parties involved and to QSEC for holding the workshop at their lovely venue. 

 

We also had video taken on the day.  This editing process has proven to be extremely time consuming for our friend Toby.  We will endeavour to have the accompanying video available over the next few weeks.

The Adelaide CVI 3 star and South Australian States Championships was held at the Northern Equestrian Centre on the 8th, 9th and 10th March 2014. Monika Eriksson from Sweden, John Eccles from Scotland were invited as the international judges , with our Australian Judges Angie Deeks, Darryn Fredrick and Janet Leadbeater to officiate at this prestigious event.


The international judges provide invaluable support to our Australian Judges throughout the competition. At the culmination of the event the international judges officiated a day to all interested vaulting fraternity by providing training, discussion and an opportunity to ask questions to develop skills in training, coaching and judging Equestrian Vaulting .

 John Eccles competes at the very highest international level as a lunger and coach. John and his daughters, Joanne and Hannah, frequently win at international events, with Joanne being our current world Champion. John has not only made huge improvement in the skills of the vaulters, but has provided support and training for the horses and lungers

Congratulations to Morgan Spary and Samantha Young for receiving qualifying scores for the World Equestrian Games as Par de deux (Pairs).


This event provided opportunity for vaulters to qualify internationally without the cost of overseas travel. I can also congratulate many more of the competitors for receiving qualifying scores to compete at the next level.
I would like to thank the Equestrian South Australia and Equestrian Australia for all their support and guidance in organising this event.

QLD Fassifern Vaulting Team Shortlisted for WEG

The QLD based Fassifern Vaulting Team have been placed on the Shortlist to compete at WEG 2014 as a squad.
