The Western Equestrian Society (WES) was formed in 1985 to promote the discipline of Western Riding to the standard as practised in the United States.
We promote the sport for enthusiasts at all levels, whether pure beginners or seasoned competitors.
You can enjoy all of our ridden activities with ANY breed of horse or pony. Members participate with Highland ponies, Welsh ponies and cobs, traditional cobs, Haflingers, Arabians and also the various western breeds.
In fact, you name the breed and there’s probably a WES member out there riding it in a western saddle! We like a bit of variety!
We are looking for a treasurer to join the team at the end of this year.

Sorry for the delay in posting but we have been very busy. Did anyone lose this glove at the WES Nationals. It was found in the gateway close to the toilets on the last day may have been dropped when ferrying property to the car park.
