Maitland Park Junior Equestrian Development Squad (JEDS)

Equestrian WA is delighted to announce our new Maitland Park Junior Equestrian Development Squad (JEDS) for 2023!

The Junior Equestrian Development Squad has been created to assist the young riders of Western Australia (riders must be 17 years of age or under, as of 1 January 2023) to perform at the top level for their age group and open the pathway to the high-performance squads of WA. 

We invite applications from equestrian's future stars across WA!

All Horse/rider combinations will need to complete a form (similar to what has been done before) with their qualifications between 1/1/22 and 1/1/23.

New combinations, new riders or past members who do not meet the qualifications will need to ride at the assessment.

All riders will need to send through an approximately 500 word written essay or a two-to-three-minute video answering  questions.

For more information on the JEDS program including the application form, qualification and key dates, click the relevant documents below.
