Horse SA provides services for horse owners and the horse community through:
The collection and dissemination of information through communication channels
Services which support and enable coordination, sustainability, planning, development, knowledge, skills and capacity
Liaison with government agencies, monitoring legislation, policy, contribute to public consultations
And importantly, recognition of the horse as a part of our culture and heritage.
Common interest topics for all horse owners include trails & places to ride, facilities, horse and property care, biosecurity, welfare, emergency preparedness and large animal rescue. Club and business development support take place through education programs covering a range of topics including workplace safety, child safe environments, equine law, governance and business practices.
Advocacy is continuous, and takes place on multiple levels and in many formats, from Members of Parliament receiving a regular e-news, through to meetings, participating on committees with government representatives, or in public consultations, reviewing documents, coordinating information and engaging in social media.
Communication is ongoing, including face to face meetings or online webinars supported by the Horse SA website, Facebook, E-news, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest & Youtube. Lastly, there is the Horse SA warehouse holding information from past projects and events. Horse enthusiasts are invited to join, like or follow.
Education, including conferences, workshops, farm walks or special interest talks, is linked to the core business areas outlined in Horse SA’s strategic plan. Educational opportunities may be formal, social, online or consist of photographic, audio or written resources.
This work assists to attract, retain and build capacity within the community of horse enthusiasts in South Australia, further enabling in some way for people to ride and own horses, join clubs, go to events and support businesses.
We warmly welcome you to join the Horse SA community.
