Horse SA Equine Facility Network

It’s no secret. Getting new horse facilities happening in South Australia is far harder than it should be. Local, regional, state level or sports specific. Five or more facilities could be newly installed or significantly upgraded tomorrow around the boundary of Greater Adelaide just to meet current demand.

It’s also no secret that the ageing facilities still in use have to be kept up to date to meet workplace safety, health department, animal welfare, child safety, fire and other regulations.

There is a mix of private facilities too, who kindly make facilities available for community use or private hire.

This network help with information sharing, warehousing online of information that is needed for typical funding applications, links to what is needed for maintenance etc.

Notifications of government grants, plans for consultation relating to community facility development it’s important to put your hand up in, and bartering ideas. Yes, what can you get for nothing or in exchange for something?

Let’s help each other out.

Community facility development is not a competition, it’s about working together to invest in the future of our recreation and sport horse activities and passions.
