#GameChangers

#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.

How you can nominate a #GameChanger

#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)

December 2020 #GameChanger

Tina Collison is definitely a #GameChanger! Her friend Nicole Scully told us how Tina, who is an ESNZ member and from the Ōhāriu Valley Adult Riding Club, very kindly came out of her way to pick Nicole and her horse up for the riding club show jumping (they don’t have transport).

December 2020 #GameChanger

We love a group of #GameChangers! Tabitha Skegg wanted to make special mention of this group for going the extra mile at the recent Wairarapa A&P Show where she was secretary.

November 2020 #GameChanger

Six year Briar Herries, a member of the Gisborne Dressage Group, is a wonderful #GameChanger showing us all that you’re never too young to be a #GameChanger. 

October 2020 #GameChanger

Sally Linton from the Waikato Dressage Group is a perfect example of what we mean when we talk about a #GameChanger: someone who lives the values which our Change the Rein campaign is all about.
