State Equestrian Centre Facility Funding Proposal

To all EWA members and SEC patrons,
Equestrian Western Australian (EWA), a not-for-profit organisation, has proudly managed the State Equestrian Centre (SEC) since it was built for EWA Members and the broader Equestrian community in 1985.

The SEC is now 33 years old and requires substantial remedial work and redevelopment to guarantee its future for the next 20 years. EWA in collaboration with reports commissioned by the WA Department of Sport have developed a SEC Redevelopment Proposal that identifies $15 million of required works and the need for a commitment to annual recurring funding for long-term facility maintenance.

EWA has a plan to obtain the required funding and has been actively promoting the SEC Redevelopment Proposal to Federal, State and Local Government. However, we need the support of all EWA members and SEC patrons to help us in this endeavour.
Our EWA membership can no longer fund the required maintenance of a 33 year old facility. The ‘Home of Equestrian Sport in WA’ is at serious risk of closure, unless we receive the necessary funding. Without the redevelopment and this essential funding, EWA will need to decide whether the current lease with the City of Swan, which is up for renewal at the end of 2020, is resigned.

WA has a strong and successful equestrian community and the SEC is central to this success. It is the home for riders from grass roots to Olympian and Paralympian level, organisations such as Riding for the Disabled, Pony Club, Perth Polocrosse, and numerous equestrian groups and community groups.

EWA will be contacting all members of the SEC community in the coming weeks to update you on our progress and to seek your support in advocating for this important upgrade.
