Welcome to the February edition of Evolve

Dear Coaches and Officials,

A major announcement this month was the extension of the reaccreditation period for all EA NCAS Coaches and NOAS Officials from two years to three. This change was prompted by member feedback requesting a more generous period for coaches and officials to complete their compulsory updates. It also brings EA into line with several other sports which use the NCAS and NOAS system. To find out what this means for you please visit the EA website

Until next month,

Gina Haddad,

Education Manager, Equestrian Australia

Happy hooves, happy horse

We have all heard the old proverb “No hoof – No horse” and this statement could not be more accurate for today’s horse. Just like the skin, the appearance and integrity of the hoof is a reflection of the health, environment and nutritional state of the horse. MORE Facebook Like ButtonTweet Button
