The Mounted Team is located within the Kapunda SES Unit. Regular SES training is undertaken on Thursday nights at 7.30pm. Mounted training varies from half day to full day exercises. Logistics staff, resourced from the Kapunda S.E.S. Unit complements the mounted team. When the horse team goes out, the whole Unit packs up and comes along to help out.
The Mounted Team also has a public relations role and has been utilised at the Barmera Field Day, Strathalbyn SES Open day, SA Emergency Service Games, and SES Week Parades.
To join this Unit, you need to have a horse of good health and mild temperament, preferably aged 5 years or older. Persons wishing to join must be competent riders. There is a yearly assessment for both riders and horses.
