Equestrian High Performance panel welcome Hamish Cargill

The Equestrian High Performance Panel are pleased to welcome Hamish Cargill into the fold as the High Performance Program moves into a dynamic new phase in preparation for the postponed Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Following the recent changes regarding the governance structure of equestrian sport within Australia the High Performance Program, overseen by the High Performance Panel; now operate under the Australian Institute of Sport. These circumstances led the High Performance Panel to review the diversity of skills, expertise and interests represented on the panel resulting in the decision to appoint an additional member to bolster the existing leadership spectrum, with specific focus on the representation of the riders.

Cargill brings with him both extensive corporate and high performance equestrian experience and is a respected member of the Australian Eventing community. He is a Director of Principals, at Australia and New Zealand's largest independent brand and communications agency, where he advises national and international clients and manages a team across their Sydney and Melbourne offices.

In the saddle Cargill is an accomplished rider and has competed up to 5* level both in Australia and overseas. In 2011 he competed at the prestigious Kentucky Three-Day Event in the USA, Burghley Horse Trials in the UK and was also named as reserve rider for the 2019 Oceania Championships Senior Team.

Chairman of the High Performance Panel, Leigh Clifford said, “We are thrilled to welcome Hamish Cargill to the High Performance Panel and have no doubt his range of skills, experience and voice will add great value to deliberations on the Panel. Not only does Hamish demonstrate a desire and capability to help guide our athletes to podium success but as a current high performance rider himself is able to provide a fresh perspective on behalf of our athletes”.
