Member Benefits

 Membership Brochure  

Competition

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*. 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.
