EWA & Off the Track WA Educational Clinics

Excellent opportunities are on offer for horses and riders across Western Australia to benefit from the expertise and experience of Equestrian Australia-approved coaches in the year ahead.

Equestrian Western Australia (EWA) in partnership with Off the Track WA (OTTWA) are thrilled to announce an extensive list of OTTWA coaching clinic dates for 2023.

It is hugely rewarding for EWA to be involved in the re-education journey for off-track horses and riders and the partnership with Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA) through their OTTWA program has been vital to the success of these clinics. We are proud to be part in the OTTWA initiative for retired thoroughbred and standardbred racehorses.

Alongside this season of OTTWA clinics, EWA is delighted to announce opportunities for the wider equestrian community to access and enjoy expert coaching. A day for all breeds is available at each regional clinic**.
