Annual General Assembly

About the ESNZ Annual General Assembly

The ESNZ Annual General Assembly acts as a platform for discussions, voting on any major decisions of ESNZ and the governance of the sport and is also an opportunity for you to meet and talk with people governing your sport in person.

The business which must be transacted at the AGA includes:

  • The Annual Report of ESNZ
  • Items of business of which notice has been given under Article 20.1.b
  • Election of the President and the Vice President
  • Appointment of the Auditor
  • Any alterations to the ESNZ Constitution

Each discipline is entitled to Nine Voting Delegates.


The 2018 67th Annual General Assembly of Equestrian Sports New Zealand was held on Tuesday 9 October in Wellington at the West Plaza Hotel.


Mr Richard Sunderland was elected to the position of ESNZ President for the 2018-19 season, and Nick Pyke was elected to the position of Vice President


ESNZ ran two workshops, in conjunction with the AGA

  • Dr Stephen Kara of Axis Sports Medicine presented our workshop on concussion in equestrian sports, and the new blue card for concussion and serious injury
  • Graeme Nahkies of Boardworks presented a workshop on Governance Training
