Equestrian WA

October 8, 2020

12 days until nominations close!

All voting members of Equestrian WA have received a notice calling for nominations for positions on the Board and our other committees that are becoming vacant at the end of the year.

This is a great opportunity for individuals to have an opportunity to ‘put back’ into our sport.

The Board of EWA has worked tirelessly to support our sport and the State Equestrian Centre.  And our Sports and other Committees do the same for their individual sectors.

Whilst we are all time poor, and volunteers – many of you have the ability to make a positive difference to our sport.

Our committees require leaders – if you know of someone who has qualities that will provide leadership to our sport, please approach them and suggest they nominate.

New ideas are the lifeblood of good Committees – we need passionate people to provide leadership and ideas.

The Board and CEO have worked closely with Sports Committees during the past few years, and will continue to provide support and leadership.

Whilst there are only a few positions on the various committees being open to election, all Committees also have some opportunities for appointing positions, so those who nominate and may not be successful in the election may be offered an appointed position – again these are not ‘closed shop’ positions – they are genuine positons to ensure there is a good balance of skills and representation on the committees.

We have a great sport, please consider who may help us make the sport stronger, grow participation and provide leadership into 2021 and beyond.

Nominations close on 20th October 2020.

Capel Horse and Pony Club with the support of the Swan River Horse Trials Committee have secured a grant to purchase a water tank and reuseable water bottles and coffee cups for its major events.

Single use plastic water bottles make up 10% of all rubbish found by the cleanup Australia movement. Coffee cups and lids are the second biggest litter found in cleanups.

Capel Horse and Pony club does not have drinking water readily available and as such over 1000 throw away bottles of water can be consumed at its two major events.

The Spring ARCA Challenge is not too far away! Even if you are not riding, this is a lovely social event for adult riders. So why not come down, cheer on your club mates, check out the trade stands, buy a coffee or something to eat and watch some dressage in the beautiful setting of Brookleigh Estate.

Two Queens and Brummel’s Brew will both be on site to keep riders, spectators and supporters happy! See you there!


Once the fog cleared it was a fantastic day at the Avon Valley ARC Unofficial Dressage Protocol / Training Day. We had a fairly small number of entries, which afforded a low stress environment to horses and riders. Entrants were encouraged to wear their matchy-matchy gear to add a bit of colour and fun to the day.

Tests ridden ranged from Preparatory to Elementary. All riders received some encouragement and tips from Judge Nicky Chetwin (the affirmative stickers on our test papers were a big hit!). Everyone came away with something learned and a smile, we will definitely be having another one soon! Watch this space.




With the latest easing of restrictions in Phase 4 by the WA Government, we have now reviewed and updated the following documents to support the gradual restart of the equestrian activities in WA.

We all want to get back to normal life as soon as possible. Ensuring our members, their friends and families remain safe and prepared is critical to achieving this.

One of the ways we can all play our part is to get the Australian Government's COVIDSafe app. While downloading the app is entirely voluntary, it has been highly recommended by both the Australian and WA Governments to assist our health professionals and help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Equestrian WA is encouraging all members to consider downloading the app to help keep our community safer.

EWA gratefully acknowledges the support of the Department of Sport and LotteryWest.
