Risk Management Strategy

NCEC aims to run safe and friendly competitions. All National Capital Equestrian Club events, both official competitive and closed unrestricted will be conducted under EA and FEI rules were relevant. The following Risk Management Plan meets requirements under those rules. The Club reserves the right to refuse entry, reprimand or, ask any competitor or spectator who is judged to be acting contrary to this plan to leave the venue.

NCEC uses many volunteers in the conduct of a competition. NCEC ensures that all volunteers are:
• Experienced with horses and competition, where applicable
• Aware of their responsibilities and inherent danger involved in equestrian activities
• Are appropriately trained and supervised
• Briefed on the day
• Have signed an insurance waiver for the day
• Under 18 years old will produce a waiver signed by parent or guardian
• NCEC has on site on competition days:
• An incident book for recording potentially dangerous events
• Basic first aid and veterinary kits
• Phone numbers for local medical services
• Phone numbers for the local veterinary surgery out of hours
• Phone number for police, ambulance and fire brigade
• A written plan for dealing with a crisis if such should occur
