COACH OF THE YEAR | Liesl Wilding

Congratulations Liesl Wilding, an EA Level 2 Dressage Coach and SSTA, who lives in Mount Helena, Western Australia.

"I started riding at a very young age on the family farm, which is 100km east of Perth. All the stock work was done on horseback, so I spent many hours in the saddle behind sheep and cattle with my dad. My mum wouldn’t have anything to do with horses, she tried her hardest to put me off them.

When I was about 11 years old, I started going to pony club. I had two ponies which I competed on in show jumping and in the Prince Phillip games. I rode ponies for other people in the breeding and show horse ring at many Royal Shows.

After school, I went to agricultural college and had a couple of horses I evented on. My passion for riding led me back to working in the equestrian industry. I worked on thoroughbred studs, then started breaking in and training horses and coaching.

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.
