Change the Rein survey

Thank you for participating in this survey. It’ll take about 8 minutes to complete.

We are really keen to hear what you think the big issues are in equestrian sport in New Zealand, and how we can, together, go about creating a safe and welcoming culture for everyone in our sport.

This survey is anonymous so you can safely tell us what you really think. There are a few optional demographic questions which will help us understand what and where the issues are and therefore where to focus our support first.
