Total investment 2014–15: $3,092,000 (high performance: $2,140,000; high performance – para: $500,000; participation: $337,000; other: $115,000)

Equestrian Australia has been rated as progressing for both the Olympic and Paralympic disciplines. The 2014 benchmark events for both Olympic and Paralympic programs was to medal at the World Equestrian Games (WEG); unfortunately neither program was able to meet the medal targets. However, a positive outcome from the WEG was the qualification of the eventing team for the Rio Olympic Games, which will enable athletes to focus on developing combinations. Australia was unable to do this at the equivalent event leading in to London 2012.

A thorough review of the high performance program conducted post-WEG identified necessary changes to the structure within the high performance programs. It also generated critical recommendations to be implemented, which will enable the required performance shift to meet the medal targets in Rio. These changes and recommendations are supported by the CEO and the board.

Equestrian Australia is continuing to pursue opportunities with the Australian Sports Foundation.
