Public consultation process

Horse Sport Ireland launch public consultation process for the appointment of industry directors to the Board of Horse Sport Ireland. 

As the national governing body for equestrian sport in Ireland. We are committed to promoting excellence in all aspects of equestrian sport, from breeding, production, coaching to competition and welfare. Our organisation’s board of directors plays a critical role in guiding our strategy and ensuring our success. The current board of directors has recently undertaken a review of the processes currently in place in respect of the appointments to the Board of Directors. The board have considered whether such processes serve the organisation in the best possible manner. Recognising that the sport horse industry is a wide and diverse community, we are considering changing the appointment method to the board of directors to ensure that we have access to the best talent available and to create a more diverse and inclusive board.

The deadline for submitting feedback is 17th August 2023 to Avalon Everett, Head of Sport, Legal and Governance, or by post Avalon Everett, Head of Sport, Legal & Governance , Horse Sport Ireland, 1st Floor, Beech House, Millennium Park, Naas, Co. Kildare, W91 TK7N.
