Notifiable gear change

Trainers should be aware of changes to the Notifiable Gear Rules and Regulations which have recently been made. It is now necessary for trainers to notify Harness Racing New Zealand when their horse is to wear a cornell collar or any external anti-choke device (does not include tongue ties). These notifications can be made in the usual manner through the HRNZ website. When a cornell collar is to be used Stipendiary Stewards will arrange for the gear to be inspected by a Veterinarian after it has been applied and prior to the race. For reference purposes the following video demonstrates how to correctly apply this piece of gear.

In addition, it is no longer required that trainers notify the use (or non-use) of a liquid titanium mask.
