Role of Equestrian Australia (EA)

The "governing bodies" of EA are the National Board, the Branches of EA, the National Discipline Committees - NDCs (Dressage, Jumping, Eventing, Vaulting, Show Horse and Carriage Driving), the National Office including the CEO

The Board of Equestrian Australia sets the overall policy and governs the National organisation. National Discipline Committees develop and administer the sport-technical aspects of their respective Sport/"Discipline".

Together with EA's State Branch Offices, the National Office implements Board policy to provide the best possible range of services to the members of EA.

The National Office and State Branch offices have a small core of professional support. This core is supported by a huge number of volunteers, from board and committee members to officials, organisers, and helpers at events. It is the volunteers who make the equestrian sport work.
