Information for Queensland Clubs and Members.

QLD has specific biosecurity laws relating to the movement of all livestock within the state. Queensland ATHRA Members, clubs, and event organisers etc, have numerous obligations at law when they move a horse from one location to another, including taking a horse for a ride down the road within their state.  As such all members and particularly organisers of horse events are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the Queensland Government Department of Agriculture & Fisheries website.
