Equestrian WA Olympic athlete pathway fundraising

The annual EWA awards night will include fundraising to support EWA members in the immediate lead up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. These athletes would be required to be on the Equestrian Australian High-Performance Squad Gold or Green Squads to qualify for funding. Currently, this includes Sharon Jarvis Para-Equestrian and Sonja Johnson Eventing.

The EWA Awards night is a celebration of EWA members and horses recognising their success and commitment to the sport during the preceding year. The addition of the Olympic fundraiser would acknowledge the accomplishment of our members on the Olympic journey.

Because of the tight time constraints of the Awards evening fundraising will include silent auction and raffle at the Awards night and possible online auction leading up to the night and the ability to make a tax-deductible donation when purchasing Awards Night tickets or you can also donate directly here . Please note that no part of award night tickets will be forwarded to the fund.

The fund will be managed by the EWA Chair, EWA Finance Director and an appointed member.

  1. The Olympic athlete pathway fund will provide Event entry fee reimbursement for EWA Australia based eligible athletes entering events outside of Western Australia but within Australia.
  2. Eligible athletes will be asked to supply proof of event entry.
  3. An eligible athlete can apply for multiple event entry refunds.
  4. Fuel costs incurred in travel to events can also be claimed.
  5. Athletes may apply for additional Olympic pathway funds, and these will be assessed on a case by case basis.
  6. The total funding available to riders will be limited by funds raised for this purpose. Once the funds are exhausted, applications for funds will not be accepted.

Photographer wanted

We're looking for a reliable & motivated photographer that would be willing to take some photos and work alongside Christie Lyn Photography at the awards night.

We are happy to supply an early dinner prior to the start of the evening as a reward for helping us! If you are interested to photograph the evening, please e-mail

We are extremely lucky to have the support of returning sponsors and also the generosity of new sponsors for the Equestrian WA 2019 Awards Night! However, we are still currently seeking for a naming rights sponsor to the evening.
