About

Equestrian Western Australia (EWA) is the state sporting organisation for horse sports in Western Australia.

EWA is administered in Western Australia by a Board of Directors, a team of administration staff and committees for the sports of Dressage, Eventing, Jumping, Show Horse and Vaulting. The EWA Board implements policies and governs the sport including the State Equestrian Centre in Brigadoon, the committees develop and administer the technical aspects of their respective sports, and the EWA office staff provide administrative support.
