Horse Safety Australia
Sport SA has partnered with Horse Safety Australia to run 4 day clinics which assess the skills involved in teaching horsemanship to others.
Horse Safety Australia Inc. -formerly the Association for Horsemanship Safety and Education in Australia Inc. (AHSE) was formed to foster higher standards of safety within the horse industry, particularly relating to teaching horse riding to groups of beginners. Since then Horse Safety Australia has accredited over 1800 instructors in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, WA and South Australia.
Upon completion of the course, student will receive a Horse Safety Australia qualification as an instructor and a statement of attainment from Sport SA for equine units within the SIS10 Sport Fitness and Recreation Training Package. These clusters of units are industry agreed competencies for being horse riding instructors or trail guides. They also meet the requirements of the Adventure Activity Standards.

Education and Sport Opportunities for Student Athletes
Sport SA and Athletes Dream Pty Ltd have signed a strategic alliance to activate and promote the importance of Athlete Career Development. Through this alliance, qualifying student athletes will receive opportunities to combine Education and Sport, particularly in North America. College scholarships in North America are sought after, hard to acquire alone and will change your life.
A sustainable lifestyle post sporting career is a key objective for any athlete. Without higher education too many athletes are experiencing a narrow pathway of opportunity in securing an enjoyable working future. Obtaining higher education is paramount in improving the skill set of an athlete, which provides long term returns of social and economic benefit to the communities that once supported the athlete.
