EQUESTRIAN AUSTRALIA

Equestrian Australia is the peak national organisation that manages the strategic direction of equestrian sport in this country.  In conjunction with the Australian Institute of Sport & Sport Australia, Chris leads their elite High Performance program.

As an Australian Olympic Team Leader and as the Chef de Mission for the Australian Equestrian Team & Australian Paralympic Team  Chris led the team to multiple medals in Rio and Tokyo.

 

With funding from Sport Australia the high performance program for the World Equestrian Championships in 2023 and Paris Olympics in 2024 continues and with appropriate strategies in place to ensure success.

Our riders and horses live and compete all over the world across eight disciplines which requires sophisticated and comprehensive oversight and management systems. As with all sport, the challenges presented by COVID in equestrian, which involves the support of so many people are significant, but through strict protocols and clear messaging we are able to compete and plan for all scenarios.
