Future Clinics offering Horse Safety Australia certifications will be advised here as they are planned. At the moment we have a number of clinics planned through to July, which are already booked out. More will be organised for the second part of 2021 if we are not stopped by Covid restrictions.
Our live-in Clinics (food, accommodation and horses provided) run for 3-5 days and nights, and are planned for Queensland, NSW, SA and Victoria each year. Please contact us through the Expression of Interest form ( found here Expression of Interest in future clinics 2021 _1 ) if you want to be notified about the next one coming up near you.
If you want to check the website regularly, you can just fill in and return the registration form for the clinic you wish to attend once it appears there.
Please act quickly, the clinics fill up very soon after they are announced!
We are now breaking up our clinics into sections – some parts are common to all, others are for a particular group …Those wanting both instructor and trail guide certifications need to be there for the whole time, others need to be there either between 3 and 5 days and 3 or 4 nights. This is a response to feedback from participants, and unfortunately also there is a price rise included.
The clinic cost for the general clinics covering both instructor and trail guide certifications is $ 1900 (including GST) with attendance required for 5 day 4 nights
For those only wanting instructor certification the clinic will run for 4 days and 3 nights and cost $1760 (including GST) This includes those wanting Instructor of Horse Handling qualifications.
For those only wanting Trail Guide certification the clinic will run for 3 and 1/2 days and 3 nights and cost $1700 (including GST)
For those only needing Instructor of Horse Handling it will be 3 days and 3 nights and cost $1650 (including GST)
Fees include :
- Food, accommodation (in a residential campsite environment), supply of horses & tack, clinic paperwork, certification (as attained), Horse Safety Australia membership for three years, and the opportunity to obtain 2 units of competency from a Registered Training Organisation

horse and rider assessments and matching the horse to the rider.

Please fill in and return the tax invoice in the registration form relating to the appropriate clinic, They are available for download on the home page, and also at the top of this page.
There will be some paperwork to do beforehand, that you need to hand in at the start of the clinic, which will help provide us with evidence of your experience and knowledge. The pre- clinic materials will be sent to you approximately three – six weeks prior to the clinic, after receiving your deposit. The balance of your fees will be due on the first day of the clinic.

You will be responsible for your own travel. Normally participants live-in and this is factored into the costs, as the clinic includes evening programs and often preparation time is needed for the next day’s activities so staying off site is not advised. (There is no reduction in the fees for staying off site). Transfers can be made available, or directions using public transport to nearby railway stations, bus stops etc, to and from the airport for interstate participants.

These will vary according to the qualification/s you are seeking. The details are on the individual registration forms, and they vary from site to site depending on the day of the week they start, etc.
