ABHA Corona Virus Update - All events suspended until further notice., Tue 17th Mar, 2020

The Australian Barrel Horse Association has been closely monitoring the developing situation of COVID-19. In view of the government’s stipulations and advice regarding the banning of non-essential events and for the well-being of our members, affiliates and volunteers the Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to suspend all ABHA events in the foreseeable future.

We understand the serious nature of COVID-19 and will continue to comply with the latest advice from the government and health authorities to protect the health and safety of our members, affiliates and volunteers.

We will continue to review the situation and advice given by the government regularly, and will keep our members updated on the situation and will advise affiliates and members immediately when we are able to continue with our affiliated events.

Affiliates who have dates in the calendar will have the option to be credited for their event or have their affiliation fee refunded.

As the COVID-19 situation continues, the ABHA National Finals and Equitana qualifying criteria will be reviewed as necessary, and an update will be provided.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and sincerely hope we can get back running again shortly.
