THE NASS NEWSLETTER NUMBER 16 NOVEMBER 2010
THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION STABLE STAFF (nass) THE NEW NAME REPLACING WHAT WAS PREVIOUSLY KNOWN AS ‘THE STABLE LADS ASSOCIATION. (SLA)’ But is this the right name? Does it portray the true picture of the key part played by all professional handler/riders? NO it does not.

Perhaps this one photograph shows above all else, the way forward and how to go about achieve the true balance within the regulation of British horseracing, and how to keep things safe and progressive within British horseracing.
