Board Statement - Meeting with the National Discipline and Coaching Committees

The four directors of the Board of Equestrian Australia and the chairs and members of the National Discipline and Coaching Committees held a constructive meeting last week to discuss a broad range of issues relating to the future operation of the sport.

The ongoing instability of the Board and EA as a whole was discussed, and the commitment and contribution made by each and every individual who has stood on the EA Board and its committee was recognised and valued, regardless of choices made and outcomes.

The financial impact of COVID-19 on the sport was acknowledged as were the complexities of managing the sport and the inefficiencies of the current way the sport functions.

The meeting agreed to work together to improve the operations, structure and culture of the organisation and to engage in on ongoing debate of ideas around the four strategic themes:

  • A national approach to safety, risk and welfare.

  • The development of coherent pathways for all participants from entry through to international high-performance a core role of the discipline committees.

  • Operational effectiveness and efficiency.

  • Restructure of the sport and its governance to allow it to operate as a cohesive national entity delivering value to the membership.

Board Communique - Board Charter
The Equestrian Australia Board has endorsed a Charter that sets out the roles, responsibilities, structures and processes to manage its affairs and enable the Board and the Directors to discharge their responsibilities to EA and each other.
The purpose of the Charter is to:

  • formalise procedures to help ensure that EA and the Board acts in a transparent and dutiful manner in both its internal and external dealings
  • ensure that appropriate checks and balances are in place to monitor the operations of the EA Board, Board members and those charged with the management of EA
  • provide a transparent standard for stakeholders to evaluate the performance of EA’s corporate governance.

The Charter does not seek to repeat, but amplify, the Constitution. Where a conflict exists between the Charter and the Constitution, the Constitution takes precedence.
The Charter is available here:

EA Board Communique - March/April 2020

The EA Board met via teleconference on 25 and 26 March and 1 April 2020.

Of utmost concern is the safety and welfare of our members and communities and the health and economic impact of COVID-19.

EA and State Branches will continue to liaise with government authorities, AOC, FEI and Sport Australia, and will provide updated information and advice about the implications to our members and our sport as it comes to hand. We appreciate that information changes quickly and varies from state to state and we encourage members to check with their State Branches and state health authorities for specific local information.

The EA Board acknowledges the right of all members to express their views and concerns. EA and the State Branches all take complaints seriously and seek to learn from members’ feedback about how we can continuously improve our service. We acknowledge that any competitive environment will produce differences of opinion and conflict, however, we expect all members to demonstrate respect for others and adherence to the Code of Conduct.

To ensure that matters of serious concern are addressed consistently, EA has decided to establish a working party to advise the Board about a uniform dispute resolution process. We are mindful of the need to strike a balance between using our members’ resources wisely and ensuring there is a clear and consistent process for lodging valid complaints. We will keep you informed as this project progresses.

The Board is continuing to work on improving communication and engagement with our stakeholders. We are committed to working closely with the State and Territory Branches to improve the quality and consistency of services we provide to our members. We have established regular contact with the Branches at both Board and CEO level to share information and improve understanding, so we are able to collectively provide a better service to you our members. We have also begun to meet regularly with the Chairs of our National Discipline Committees and the Coaching Committee.

The EA Board remains committed to continuous improvement and service to our members.

Ricky MacMillan, Chair

On behalf of the EA Board
