South African Equestrian Federation

Posted on Thu February 22, 2024.

SANESA is acknowledged by the South African Equestrian Federation (SAEF) and SASCOC and is striving to ensure that it is an all inclusive organisation and that anyone who wishes to compete,  is not disadvantaged in any way.

SANESA has dedicated itself to promoting all forms of Equestrian sport within South Africa’s schools’ community and is an "interschool" sport, that fall under the auspices of the Department of Basic Education.  Riders do not need to belong to any other Equestrian Association/Club in order to participate at any SANESA event.

Each Province in South Africa has SANESA representation and some Provinces are also broken up into Districts. Every Province/District holds up to 4 multi-discipline qualifying events in the first 7 months of the year.

It is not essential to own your own horse or pony to participate in SANESA – many riding school pupils compete with success at our events on borrowed horses/ponies.

The most important thing a learner can bring to SANESA is a passion for horses and ponies.

NRC LGF Leg 1 Olympia is hosted in George 17 to 18 February 2024.
