Here you'll find the very latest requirements if you wish to run an event or training day.


With the return to competition on 1st July 2020 Pony Club NSW has prepared some example risk assessment documents to assist clubs in their return to sport which can be found below.

Before running an event or training day, every club needs to:

Insurance may be compromised if the above are not completed.

From 1st July there will not be a restriction on the number of participants in a training group. Instead, all venues must now comply with the ‘four square metre rule’ to determine the maximum capacity for their venue and specific areas within their venue i.e. club house, canteen area, yards/stables etc. Details of capacity for each location should be easy to find eg. A sticker or poster with maximum capacity at entrance to grounds, clubhouse door, stables etc. Details can be found here, this information MUST be included in your risk assessment and Covid Safety plans. The maximum any outdoor venue can accommodate at any one time is 500 people, dependant on the area in square metres.

While restrictions have eased PCA NSW recommends that some of the Covid safe practices implemented to minimise cross contamination continue these include (but are not limited to):
