Notice to Members

3 August 2023

Dear Members,

We note that some member’s comments about the proposed new agreement between the Equestrian Federation of Singapore (EFS) and Singapore Polo Club (SPC) are misleading. We strongly advise against this as such comments could negatively impact the positive direction that both the EFS and SPC is working towards for the overall benefit of the equestrian community and Singapore residents.

The EFS and SPC are aligned to raise the overall standards of the NEP and will work closely together to expand the equestrian footprint that benefits not just the sport but also for horse loving people and also the equine community. Through this close co-operation which would be beneficial through shared professional services and better economies of scale, the future looks promising for NEP and equestrian sports.

Members are encouraged to attend the coming EGM on 15 August 2023 so that you can have a clear understanding on the benefits of a positive collaboration between the EFS and SPC beneficial to the community and equestrian industry.

Thank you.
