It’s the time of year for Horse SA to plan for programs, projects and tasks into 2018. We welcome your ideas, feedback or suggestions to improve or update the services Horse SA provides.

It’s a fast moving world, with the ‘disruption’ of constantly evolving technologies changing how people receive, send, share and interact with the work of organisations such as Horse SA. If there is something we need to try out, revisit or re-invent – please make a suggestion. Contact us on email, mobile  0402488306 or Facebook.

Recent adaptations have included an increase in the provision of events and services which now attract a fee, with the newest being a webinar paywall for Dr Ian Chivers talk on 20 Sept, an online store catering for digital downloads, centralising a primary education delivery point at Woodside to improve management of overheads, and development of a short workshop involving Riley the Rescue Horse.

Horse SA’s core business is the foundation of the organisation; the advocacy, communication and education supporting horse owners and organisations to keep horses and horse related activities a part of our valued community in South Australia. We look forward to continuing working with all to achieve our shared visions and goals.

And……there is still time to fit in two more days of the 2017 Royal Adelaide Show, including a visit to the colourful horses (one pictured above) on the double-storey carousel.

Happy Riding!
