The Namibian Equestrian Federation (NAMEF) was founded by Mr E Homan, Mr E Holtz as well as Mr I Voigts in 1958. It was then known as the South West African Horse Society and, after Namibian independence from the Republic of South Africa in 1990, changed to NAMEF.
Affiliated to the Namibian Sport Commission (NSC), the Namibian National Olympic Committee (NNOC) and the Federation Equestrian International (FEI; international umbrella organisation of equestrian sport) since 1992, NAMEF strives to represent the equestrian sport on national and international level.
NAMEF’s main objective is to facilitate and support an environment where equestrian athletes can thrive and enjoy the sport at all levels via the FEI recognised disciplines. We promote excellence in our sport with emphasis on integrity, teamwork, and fair play.
NAMEF’s vision is to see equestrian sport enjoyed by all sectors of the Namibian community and to have Namibia represented on the international platform.
