EQUESTRIAN VICTORIA RECEIVES $65,000 IN SPORT & RECREATION FUNDING GRANTS

Equestrian Victoria is pleased to announce it has been awarded two funding grants from Sport & Recreation Victoria.

This first is a grant of $50,000 to assist Equestrian Victoria, in its capacity as a State Sporting Association, with the development of a State Equestrian Facility Plan. Equestrian Victoria was one of only three sports to secure funding for this purpose, the others being Football Federation of Victoria and Victorian Rugby Union.

The second grant is for $15,000, under the Victorians More Active program, for increasing participation in sport. These funds will be allocated between the four disciplines of dressage, eventing, show jumping and show horse, with further details to be announced by Equestrian Victoria in the near future.

Equestrian Victoria Board Chairman Ingrid Green said this was a great development for the organisation. “The new funding will enable Equestrian Victoria to channel much needed funds into areas of direct benefit to our members, to enhance participation and improve our facilities,” she said.

“We are grateful to the Victorian Government for recognising the value of equestrian as a sport in Victoria.”

Equestrian Victoria is also planning to lodge an expression of interest for funding from the Supporting Victorian Sport and Recreation Program, a new Victorian Government funding program designed to enhance the investment in health and wellbeing of more Victorians through sport and active recreation for the period 2016 – 2019.
