The Woodhill Sands Trust was established in 2016 as a charitable trust, by a group from the Auckland equestrian sports community. It is registered under The Charitable Trusts Act and has an Inland Revenue approved income tax exemption.

The Woodhill Sands Trust is governed by a group of volunteer Trustees who are business professionals and equestrians and are resourceful, pragmatic and effective in working with limited resources.
Glen has recently retired from public practice where he was a Director at accounting and business advisor, Campbell Tyson Ltd. Building on this extensive commercial experience, Glen now has a number of governance roles. In the past this has included roles within equestrian sports, including at ESNZ Board level. Glen is an owner and rider, competing up to GP level in show jumping.
The Trust also employs a full time Venue Manager and part time Trust Manager.
An experienced events and venue manager, Angela has been running events at Woodhill Sands for over 12 years. The role oversees all matters relating to the operation of the venue; day-to-day management of grounds and facilities, use of the grounds by other groups and that the venue meets all the relevant sport rules and health and safety standards. Angela is also a sport horse owner and former competitive rider. Angela can be reached via e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Trust like many sporting organisations is also heavily reliant on a pool of local casual employees from within the local community and substantial volunteer support for events.
