Biosecurity at the Dressage Festival

Equestrian Victoria has a legal obligation under Workplace Health and Safety legislation to provide a safe competition, and therefore consider Biosecurity at the 2016 Pryde's Dressage Festival. Welfare of our horses is also the founding principle under FEI and Equestrian Australia rules.

BioSecurity – Vaccinations

Hendra vaccination will NOT be a condition of entry for the 2016 Dressage Festival. However, the Organising Committee strongly recommends that all horses from Queensland and following post codes in NSW:

2426, 2427, 2428, 2429, 2430, 2431, 2439, 2440, 2441, 2442, 2443, 2444, 2445, 2446, 2447, 2448, 2449, 2450, 2452, 2453, 2454, 2455, 2456, 2460, 2462, 2463, 2464, 2465, 2466, 2469, 2470, 2471, 2472, 2473, 2474, 2475, 2476, 2477, 2478, 2479, 2480, 2481, 2482, 2483, 2484, 2485, 2486, 2487, 2488, 2489, 2490, 2730, 2890, 2898, 2899
