About Us

Nigel Casserley
founded National Equestrian Communications in 1976. It provides public address systems and announcing to equestrian competitions in America from Olympic Games to local pony club rallies. From behind the microphone, Nigel has been closely involved with event management for over 40 years from Olympic Games, World Championships, World Cups and national championships in the international disciplines of eventing, dressage and driving. In 1984, he added steeple chasing to his repertoire, including providing sound to four of the five Grade 1 stakes sanctioned by the National Steeplechase Association in the United States hosting spectators in excess of 70,000.
