Equestrian SA - New Strategic Plan

Equestrian South Australia (ESA) has finalised the draft of the Strategic Plan.

Central to everything, is “To create a thriving equestrian sports community that is inclusive and accessible”, with our vision and key priorities inextricably linked to this.  Each component of our strategy is deliberately connected to emphasise the unified, consistent and proactive approach required for the advancement of Equestrian sport within South Australia.

This plan has been developed through a collective and consultative approach with our discipline committees, and feedback taken from a number of additional stakeholders through the EA Economic Impact Survey.  We are now seeking further feedback from our members.

We will initiate change in our business to constantly improve the environment in which we operate, to ensure we maximise the visibility of the sport.

We will work proactively with all levels of the sport including discipline committees, members, organising committees and volunteers to collaborate and achieve the best outcomes for the sport.
