Following the confirmation of equine influenza in horses stabled at Centennial Park in the centre of Sydney, the New South Wales (NSW) Minister for Agriculture has issued an order to cancel all horse events and ban all horse movements in NSW. The horse “standstill” is on for at least 72 hours (starting Friday, Aug. 24).


We urge all horse owners and riders not to transport their horses and to avoid making contact with other horses.


They should thoroughly wash after contact with their horses. Maintain a high level of personal hygiene: It’s best to shower and change clothes.


Minimise movements of horses and movement of people between groups of horses
