Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) advises that all licensed participants are required to complete the Equine Welfare Framework online training program.

The program will take approximately 15 minutes, with participants asked to work through the lessons and undertake a knowledge check on each topic.

The training module aims to:

  • Have collaboration within the harness racing industry that clearly identifies the regulations all participants are expected to follow in accordance with the Australian Harness Racing Rules (AHRR) and Equine Welfare Framework
  • Build greater education that improves knowledge, skills and compliance
  • Establish an understanding of the Standardbred Welfare Assessment Guide and self-assessment tools

The online training program must be completed by all participants as part of their 2021-22 licensing renewal, which is due by September 1, 2021.


If you have difficulty accessing or completing the online training program, please contact HRV on (03) 8378 0200 or info@hrv.org.au.
