Both the equestrian and para-equestrian programs are rated as on track. Significant performance shifts have been made across both programs following reviews conducted after the 2014 World Equestrian Games. This has resulted in better management of both human and equine athletes and a greater commitment to high performance processes from all involved parties.

The eventing team participated in the 2015 Nations Cup and finished in third place overall. Athletes compete at various events throughout the year; the majority of these are overseas. A greater emphasis on performance analysis and direct coach-athlete feedback has been very positive.

In para-equestrian there has been a significant improvement in the athletes’ daily training environment over the past 12 months. Performance impacts will be assessed from the competition season which runs from October to January.


Equestrian Australia had some governance challenges in 2015 and is continuing to work towards adopting the MSGP. The establishment of a nominations committee and the completion of a skills audit of the board were both significant achievements to help progress the sport’s governance. Equestrian Australia requires constitutional change to become compliant with the MSGP and would benefit from a board evaluation.
