Horse Safe

AHIC has revised the Code of Practice, Horse Safe. This new version was compiled by AHIC’s sub committee, using feedback received since its original release in 2003, along with AHIC member organisations’ comment on draft changes.  Interested parties were given further opportunities to comment on the draft revised version when it was posted on the website in 2009.

Horse Safe is a ‘living’ document, and the AHIC invites any interested party to provide input into the next revision.

Please address any comments, suggested revisions and feedback to either the AHIC Office via the contact form on the right hand side of this site or HorseSafe author Nina Arnott at nina@horsesafetyaustralia.com.au. Your opinion is valued, and we are happy to discuss any aspects or applications of the Code with you. You can also ring the office on 03 5222 6650 or Nina on 0411 685 211.
