What do you get from the DSA and how is it funded

What do you get from the DSA and how is it funded At this time of the year, where membership renewals are due, we thought it prudent to give you more information on Dressage South Africa (DSA) to allow you an educated understanding of the organisation and the funding. Equestrian sport in South Africa has over the past couple of years been restructured and now comprises a matrix organisation with a parent body – South African Equestrian Federation (SAEF) – including Provinces and Disciplines.

First Aid Level 1 Certification

First Aid Level 1 Certification

We are underway with facilitating the First Aid Level One Courses for registered Coaches nationally and have successfully completed three courses in October (two in Gauteng and one in Cape Town) which were a great success and we received fantastic feedback from the coaches who attended. SAEF has donated a substantial amount of money enabling us to hugely subsidize these courses. The subsidy is only available until the 17th of November2018. Thereafter, you will have to pay a service provider R800 – R1200 for the same course that all registered DSA Coaches can currently get for R75. This is really a phenomenal offer and will probably never be repeated again. The next courses are due to take place as follows: Nelspruit 1 to 2 November 2018 Ulwazi – Midlands 3 to 4 November 2018 Shongweni 5 to 7 November 2018 If you are interested and the locations indicated, or dates are not suitable for you then please contact us urgently as we are prepared to jump through hoops in...
