Following the government’s announcement last week that Victoria will return to COVIDSafe Summer Settings from 11:59pm Friday 26 February 2021, we have updated our EVENT AND COMPETITION RESOURCES as at 1 March 2021. 

The key changes in these documents are:

  • Updated capacity guidelines

  • Removal of alternating yard/stabling requirement
  • Removal of Coach Certification course (no longer available) – Aus Govt course requirement remains
  • Inclusion of Fixed Seating information
  • Inclusion of Public Event Framework overview


It is critical that we all comply with the COVIDSafe protocols and principles. Equestrian Victoria remains committed to looking after its members and the wider community by stopping the spread however this requires the co-operation and understanding of all of our community.

Many thanks for your continued work and efforts in delivering COVIDSafe events and stopping the spread.
