#GameChanger Elaine Bradley!

Elaine Bradley was nominated as a #GameChanger by Arden Merritt for all the help and encouragement which saw Arden achieve the goal of competing in qualifying classes a lot sooner than hoped. Elaine, a #GameChanger helping to make dreams come true 😊 !

Elaine helped me and my pony achieve going to the qualifying classes a lot sooner than I ever could’ve hoped. She deserves to be a #GameChanger, I believe in her as she has believed in me.

Elaine, thank you for being such an inspirational and supportive #GameChangers. Your care, help, support and encouragement for Arden (and no doubt other young riders) is exactly what makes a true #GameChanger and are the sorts of qualities that our Change the Rein campaign are all about. Thank you!

#GameChangers is about encouraging people to tell us about acts of kindness or helpfulness by ESNZ members that made a difference to someone’s day.  So, please keep your eyes and ears open when you’re out and about and nominate someone you witness doing something kind, supportive, helpful for someone (or a horse) that demonstrates the sort of inclusive, supportive, safe and friendly culture we’re working towards with Change the Rein.  We will make sure people are aware of what great people we have in our sport.

If you want to nominate an ESNZ #GameChanger, this is what you do:

Please email to nzef@nzequestrian.org,nz the following information (#GameChangers in the subject line):

  • Person nominating the #GameChanger – your name, contact details (email & phone number)
  • Who is the ESNZ member being nominated as a #GameChanger (name, discipline, area group/club and role eg official, rider, volunteer, parent)
  • Photo of the #GameChanger person (not necessarily in the act, so to speak)
  • What was the #GameChanger behaviour witnessed and the outcome (this doesn’t need to be heroic – just a kind, considerate, helpful, supportive, inclusive, welcoming, friendly act)
