Reining Our Resilience - Overview

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) slows the world beyond the imaginations of most, we all need significant self-care to ensure we stay well physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally.

During this extraordinary time of heavy restrictions around leaving homes, social distancing and healthy hygiene practices, EV is committed to helping our members navigate the challenges that isolation brings.

Reining our Resilience

Whilst we continue to be a source of information for members in relation to the latest government and health authority updates, this project ‘Reining our Resilience; health and wellness tips’ aims to support and encourage each of you to look after your own health, manage stress and anxiety, so you are in a better place to care for your family and equine friends.

We have extended our partnership with Christopher Shen Consulting - team psychologist of the Equestrian Victoria Jumping State Squads - to share a weekly ‘Reining our Resilience’ health and wellness tip on our social pages and website.
