For the health and safety of our riders, horses, officials, volunteers, contractors and spectators, ESNZ is introducing a Drug and Alcohol Policy.  It is not only performance enhancing drugs which are risk to our sport, but also the substances which are decidedly non-performance enhancing such as alcohol and illicit drugs.

While Drug Free Sport deals in the main with performance enhancing substances, the ESNZ Drug and Alcohol Policy paves the way for drug and alcohol testing at events to minimise the risk of harm to riders and horses,  and to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone.

We’re seeking feedback on the draft Drug and Alcohol Policy. All feedback to Heidi Bulfin at heidi@nzequestrian.org.nz by 12 July 2019
