Current financial members of SPPHA NSW are eligible to take advantage of the Personal Accident (PA) Insurance offer available through Equestrian Sport Insurance (ESI). This insurance provides 24/7 cover when taking part in hobby/pleasure horse–related activities (i.e. not earning money from horse riding/handling). The commercial cost of this PA cover is currently $169.50, taken out through the Australian Horse Industry Council (AHIC). SPPHA NSW has received generous sponsorship to affiliate with AHIC, which activates a price reduction of the annual fee to $95 for adults and $75 for those under 18 years of age.
As well as the price reduction to members, SPPHA NSW will receive a small administration fee for managing the insurance listing. So, while members can enjoy 24/7 personal accident insurance cover at this generously reduced cost, SPPHA NSW will also benefit through receipt of the administration fee – a winning situation for both members and the association.
This insurance can be purchased directly online at Equestrian Sports Insurance
Just answer yes that you are an AHIC Affiliate and select Standardbreds and you are on the way. This replaces the need for states to gather the information from members and send the information to ESI.
