Rolton was required to step down from the position at today’s meeting as she has served as the NEC Chairperson for the maximum time that current committee rules permit.
Enzinger is a popular and highly respected member of the eventing community who has enjoyed success as a rider and trainer. Victorian based, he is a level one EA NCAS coach and currently competes at the elite level.
