Membership Benefits

Competition Pathways

Whether you are a pleasure rider simply wanting to have fun with your horse or a seasoned competitor at the peak of your chosen discipline, EWA membership allows you to participate at events across the state (where EWA membership is accepted). Achievements at all levels are recognised through prizes at events, leaderboards and annual awards for each discipline.


Insurance

Your EWA membership provides you with 24/7 personal accident and public liability insurance cover that is second to none. Your insurance covers you for any activity when you are handling your horse, whether in the paddock, on a trail ride, at a clinic or competition and when you are travelling to and from events. The insurance will also assist while you are off work with a loss of income protection component. For policy details and additional product packages available to members please visit the Gow Gates website.


Horse Registration and Performance Records

Members can register their horses to compete in official competitions, for biosecurity purposes or to secure a name. Members can also view their competition performance results on MyEA.


Support the Sport

Part of all membership fees goes to Equestrian Australia in the form of a National Levy which allows the continued administration, development and regulation of the sport on a national and international level. By becoming a member, you will be part of a structured organisation that formulates rules and regulations, monitors the sport, and also contributes to the training of officials and coaches. Your membership will also help support the State Equestrian Centre.


High Performance Programs

The EWA High Performance Programs offers members development opportunities through talent identification, pathways training clinics and state team representation. Riders who achieve good consistent results in their chosen discipline(s) will be invited to join the High Performance Squads.


Youth Development Programs

EWA offers a number of youth development and competition pathways for young riders including the Saddles Plus State Interschool Championship event, La Noir Equestrian Rising Stars Development Squad, Saddles Plus Interschool Series and discipline-specific youth leaderboards.


Education

Members have access to a vast range of educational opportunities in the areas of Horse Management, Riding, Officiating and Coaching. Contact the Equestrian Australia Education department on (02) 8762 7777 for more information on current resources and courses available. EWA also regularly conducts educational seminars or workshops which are free or discounted for members.


State Equestrian Centre Discounts

Generous discounts are available to members for private arena, stable or cross country course hire at the State Equestrian Centre in Brigadoon.


SportsPass

EWA is conscious of the expensive nature of horse ownership and participating in equestrian activities. To help our members offset the costs associated with this, we have partnered with SportsPass to give members access to discounts, offers and cashback from some of Australia's leading retailers, services and experiences.
