Pretty much everyone knows that driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is fraught with danger. Doing the same when driving a horse in a race, or anywhere else come to that, is arguably even more dangerous to both the person and other drivers.
Given recent unfortunate events, the Trainers & Drivers Association is negotiating with HRNZ to conduct seminars with an expert on such matters. These seminars will be held in the main centres, and while they will be compulsory for cadets and Junior Drivers, any other Industry participants are welcome to attend. The cost of these events will be covered by HRNZ.
Details will follow.
