YOU'RE INVITED TO THE SYDNEY EQUESTRIAN FESTIVAL
To celebrate 20 years since the Sydney Olympic Games the Sydney CDI and Sydney International 3 Day Event are joining forces to present the Sydney Equestrian Festival. The Festival will offer a feast of Equestrian action across eight days of competition at the former Olympic venue, Sydney International Equestrian Centre
It is with mixed emotions that we announce that Sara Botten will be ending her time as Event Coordinator with Equestrian WA. We're sad to lose her as a member of the Equestrian WA team but excited about her prospects for the future as she pursues new opportunities. However, with each change comes new opportunity; therefore, we are looking for someone extraordinary to fill these huge shoes that are departing our team.
Congratulations Vanessa Hancox from Vanessa Hancox Equine Services for raising $700 through her Bushfire Fundraiser Clinic which all proceeds were donated to the Ellenbrook Branch of Bendigo Bank's Bushfire Appeal!
