A Clinic at your site?
Times, Meals and Site Responsibilities
Clinics usually run from Sunday night (after tea) to Thursday evening (before tea).
The only time this last meal inclusion varies is if it is a very large group, then some may spill over to after tea on the Thursday as Thursday afternoon and evening is the time we see all individually to talk about how they went. When this happens tea should be provided for the extras.
Horse Safety Australia staff extra meals: Horse Safety Australia staff will need tea provided on Sunday night (they arrive mid afternoon Sunday to get organised) and Thursday night (when the candidates have finished). Friday breakfast should also be included for them. The staff stay over until just before lunchtime on the Friday (to do their post clinic paperwork together…often they are drawn from different states) before returning home.
The site is responsible for transfers (car travel) to and from the airport.
All staff fees, travel and other costs and all arrangements are organised by Horse Safety Australia.
Candidate and Site Costs
For years we let sites organise finances, and often the clinics did not come off as the site did not find the time to arrange the details properly. Now we now organise it all ourselves…
The fees are:
- $1100 for the first person from a site; and $1045 for others from the same organisation
- A site pack is provided for each new site, and includes many templates for running a horse business, and other useful resources including Jane Myers’ book Horse Safe
The site gets in return for use of horses and food and board for the four days/four nights of the clinic:
- $275 per participant (includes GST)
(This number includes Horse Safety Australia staff as well as candidates… e.g. 8 doing clinic with two Horse Safety Australia staff: the site is paid $2750) If the site wants to waive these fees for the in-house people they reduce their clinic fees for these people by $275, and Horse Safety Australia pays the site its fees excluding those people.
