EA Announces Appointment of International Dressage Chef d’Equipe 2023-24

Equestrian Australia has finalised its recruitment, with the EA Board recently ratifying the appointment of a Dressage Chef d’Equipe to provide leadership to Australian Dressage riders until the 31 December 2024.

Australia has a large contingent of riders based overseas, and in 2024 many Australian domiciled riders will travel to Europe to campaign for the Paris24 Olympics. High Performance Director Will Enzinger recognised the need for leadership within the Europe region and for the first-time, EA requested applicants for the Dressage Chef role be based in Europe or the UK.

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Amanda Renouard.

Amanda, a British citizen, has lived in France for the past fifteen years where, with her husband (who is in event management) and son, currently managing their own Horse Breeding facility.   

Her career path started in horse nutrition where sales and marketing introduced her into many barns working with professional athletes. An interest in managing the athletes led to Amanda acting as an Agent for many of the riders. 

Time spent in Event Management at some of the leading horse shows provided good background on the pressures behind the scenes at our large events, and an understanding on how that affects officials, management teams, horses and riders.

Amanda has also worked for other NF, in consultancy capacity’s developing High Performance programs and squad development.

"I am honoured to be offered this opportunity to help the Australia Dressage Team achieve their goals at the 2024 Paris Olympics and beyond.  This comes at a time when Australia has some exciting horsepower and talented athletes alongside the very experienced riders.  It is going to be a busy year and I am delighted to be part of it" Amanda said.

EA is pleased to introduce Amanda, and we welcome her input and support to the Australian Equestrian Team.
