Update from Equestrian NSW –

ENSW ANNOUNCEMENT RE COVID-19 VIRUS

In response to directions and advice from government, the Board of Equestrian NSW has taken the very difficult decision to strongly recommend that all events be cancelled with immediate effect.

The government advice has been to minimise social contact and non-essential travel. The pressure on emergency services means that ambulances may not be available to attend events to treat serious injuries. In this situation, the responsible decision is to take all action necessary not to further burden the emergency services or risk members' safety at events.

Equestrian NSW will also ask the NSW Office of Sport to underwrite all losses that our clubs and organising committees suffer as a result of cancelling events due to the Covid-19 virus.

We thank all our members, organising committees, officials and volunteers for their understanding and support during these unprecedented times. We will continue to monitor the situation and update you all as soon as we have any further information.

COVID-19
To our valued clients,
With the recent outbreak of COVID-19 the Nutrien Equine team held a meeting this morning and agreed the need to postpone the 2020 Toowoomba Nutrien Supreme Sale & Campdraft event until further notice.

Our team plans to meet again in June with the aim to announce a suitable date to hold the event with a date in Spring 2020 our preferred option at this time.
We will also work closely with all other performance horse organisations to best manage the performance horse calendar for the remainder of the year.

Like all of you we are disappointed not to be running the sale and competitions on their advertised time and we look forward to keeping you all informed of any developments in the coming weeks.

All sale entries will be refunded, with plans to have these refunds completed by the end of next week by the Toowoomba Team.
Any queries please contact the Toowoomba Nutrien office.
Sincerely
The Nutrien Equine Team
