Logans proudly sponsors the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC). The RIRDC horse program began in 1995 and has directed more than $11M into 204 projects that includes world leading research to address issues of importance for the Australian horse industry.


Logans proudly offers the Horse Excellence Award for the Best Turned Out Horse Handler at Raceclubs, The Sydney Show and Equestrian Events. The award recognises the time and effort the horse handler has put into preparing his or her horse for the event or race. The award consists of cash plus a suitably inscribed wall plaque to commemorate the occasion which is usually presented by a volunteer celebrity judge.
