Equestrian Australia is driving an awareness campaign on the effects of concussion in equestrian sport. Attached is a power point presentation outlining what to look for in someone who has suffered a knock. Please read this and inform yourselves of the impacts of concussion.
The VERA SMC has received notification from the AERA Distance Registrar that 3 members have now achieved the 10,000km Rider Distance Award. Congratulations to Shannon Decker, Nikki Robinson and Wendy Riha on achieving this award. It reflects a lot of hard work - both on and off the track – a lot of dedication to our sport, support from partners and family and outstanding care and consideration for the horses ridden to achieve this distance. Awards will be presented to Shannon, Nikki and Wendy at the AGM/Presentations to be held at the start of next year.
