Equestrian Australia Insurance, through Equestrian Victoria, is preferable. This insures the rider 24 hours a day, not just at competitions. It includes personal and public liability. Any competitions (including the EV State Championships) run by Equestrian Victoria require this insurance cover. Interschool competitions hosted by schools and other groups require insurance for riders competing but may accept PCV, HRCAV or school sport insurance. “School insurance” requires the organisers to receive a Certificate of Currency from the competitor’s school prior to the event, for both personal and public liability.
