008 - 013 RYAN’S RAVE & OPINION

The Equestrian Australia High Performance Program debate continues in our latest issue. Heath Ryan talks realistic KPIs, program funding and why we need to adopt a longer-term approach to achieving international success.

 

Meanwhile, prominent Sydney racing and equestrian enthusiast James Mathers believes EA has a clever enough board to overcome shortfalls in its High Performance programs. In an urgent call for change, James delivers his opinion on the state of EA… before providing some constructive suggestions for the future.


On a lighter note, Heath also provides us with some tips for the current breeding season. With top bloodlines available in Australia today, we can now breed serious performance horses to match it with the world’s best - especially when it comes to breeding eventers!
