EA Top-up Insurance for Officials Now Available

EA Insurance ImageEquestrian Australia acknowledged that there was a gap in the market for EA accredited officials to be covered by insurance if they were earning an income from their officials duties.

EA has been working with Gow Gates Insurance Brokers to form a policy for insurance coverage for EA Officials. The new policy will come into effect on 1 January 2014 and EA accredited officials will be able to opt to take out additional coverage which will see them covered whilst acting in their capacity as an Equestrian Australia registered official including when earning an income or at events which are not EA affiliated.

As a benefit of your Equestrian Australia official affiliation, you can opt to take out additional insurance which will cover you for:

  • Personal Accident

  • Public & Products Liability

  • Professional Indemnity

Whilst undertaking duties as an equestrian official under your EA accreditation, including in an income earning capacity.

This is in addition to the cover which you would hold through your EA Membership which covers you 24/7 for any Non-Income earning equestrian activities.

The policy will cover you up to the level of your accreditation with Equestrian Australia. To be eligible for this insurance you will need to be a current EA member and hold a current EA official accreditation.  If you require further insurance to cover you above your EA accreditation Gow-Gates can provide you with a top-up option.

The initial policy will cover officials from 1 January 2014 – 30 June 2014, after this point the insurance will be taken out on a 12 months basis. The fee for 6 months insurance is $60.00 and payment can be made via EA Online - CLICK HERE.
