#GameChanger – Tatum Fletcher!

Rebecca Aplin sent us this lovely message about why she thinks Tatum Fletcher as a special #GameChanger.

My nomination is Tatum Fletcher because she has followed me around the country helping me groom and ride my ponies/horses for multiple seasons. She does this out of the goodness of her heart and she is one special friend to me.

Tatum, congratulations, you’re what we mean when we talk about #GameChangers: people who are helpful, supportive and being a great friend. Thank you Rebecca for recognising Tatum and the special friendship you have.

#GameChangers is about encouraging people to tell us about acts of kindness or helpfulness by ESNZ members that made a difference to someone’s day.  So, please keep your eyes and ears open when you’re out and about and nominate someone you witness doing something kind, supportive, helpful for someone (or a horse) that demonstrates the sort of inclusive, supportive, safe and friendly culture we’re working towards with Change the Rein.  We will make sure people are aware of what great people we have in our sport.

If you want to nominate an ESNZ #GameChanger, this is what you do:

Please email to nzef@nzequestrian.org,nz the following information (#GameChangers in the subject line):

  • Person nominating the #GameChanger – your name, contact details (email & phone number)
  • Who is the ESNZ member being nominated as a #GameChanger (name, discipline, area group/club and role eg official, rider, volunteer, parent)
  • Photo of the #GameChanger person (not necessarily in the act, so to speak)
  • What was the #GameChanger behaviour witnessed and the outcome (this doesn’t need to be heroic – just a kind, considerate, helpful, supportive, inclusive, welcoming, friendly act)
