Welcome to the April edition of Evolve

Dear Coaches and Officials,

April is shaping up as a busy month in the Education department, with a large number of Dressage and Show Horse Judge reaccreditations being processed, an FEI jumping Course Designers Course, and an FEI Vaulting Course. Coach Educator/SSTA Workshops were organised in both Queensland and Tasmania States. The Education team has been working hard to bring quality training opportunities to our members.

If you are a Dressage or Show Horse judge yet to reaccredit please send in your reaccreditation pack as soon as possible or contact the national office if you need assistance and we will be happy to help you navigate the process.

Just a reminder to our coaches that Coach Renewals are due 30 June 2015, which is fast approaching. Coaches will receive an email link to enable online renewal the same as last year.

Until next month,

Gina Haddad,

Education Manager, Equestrian Australia
