Information for Queensland Clubs and Members.

QLD has specific biosecurity laws relating to the movement of all livestock within the state. Queensland ATHRA Members, clubs, and event organisers etc, have numerous obligations at law when they move a horse from one location to another, including taking a horse for a ride down the road within their state.  As such all members and particularly organisers of horse events are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the Queensland Government Department of Agriculture & Fisheries website.

If your club is interested in hosting an accreditation weekend, please contact your Regional Manager; contact details can be found in the Home tab.

The Accreditation training team consists of: Pam Lamshed (NSW) and Bob Meuleners (QLD).  One of these trainers will be assigned to your weekend.

Thank you and congratulations to those ATHRA members and clubs who have put in the time and effort to further enhance the safety, welfare and enjoyment of horses and riders during ATHRA affiliated events.  

Visit the Accreditation Register area for up to date listings of validated members.

Wagga AccreditationATHRA recognises that even though it is a national association of volunteers, there is a definite need for uniformity of process and rules when conducting a Trail Ride.

The Association also acknowledges its duty of care and with this in mind it jointly developed with its insurance partners Affinity Insurance Brokers an members' accreditation programme based on ATHRA's Code of Conduct.

The accreditation program is internal to ATHRA and is self managed.

Currently there are three recognised accredited positions: Trail Boss, Ride Cowra AccreditationCoordinator and Ride Steward.  Each position holds clearly defined responsibilities and elements.

The following information has been developed to assist clubs and their members in understanding ATHRA Accreditation process:

Participation in ATHRA's Accreditation program is not a daunting process and the aim is to educate individuals and to focus on risk management and safety for all.

  • All participants are taken through a training curriculum that addresses the inherent risks associated with Trail Riding and how to effectively manage them.  The Code of Conduct is used extensively as a reference source.

  • All participants who are actively involved throughout the duration of the course will receive certification as either a Trail Boss, Ride Coordinator or Ride Steward.

  • In order to obtain the Trail Boss certificate the following practical exercises must be undertaken and passed -

    • Ride and control a horse at a walk, trot and canter,
    • Open and close a gate either mounted or dismounted,
    • Mount and dismount a horse unassisted,
    • Lead a horse whilst mounted,
    • Lead a horse from the ground,
    • Correct and functional fit of tack and or equipment, and
    • Actively participate mounted in a simulated Trail Ride.

  • ATHRA strongly recommends that those seeking full Trail Boss certification bring a horse that is suitable for the practical components. A badly behaved or uncontrollable horse may affect your ability to pass aspects of the practical test.

  • Participants who do not pass all components of the practical assessments are not eligible for the Trail Boss classification, however they will still be eligible for Ride Coordinator and Ride Steward certification.

Clubs should ensure that members who are nominated to attend the accreditation course are aware of these criteria and are capable of managing the practical components.

Important information for accreditation course participants can be found in the  pdf IMS-GU-041 Accreditation Course Outline V20180207 (223 KB)

Additional information can be obtained from the Club's Regional Manager.
