Welcome to Western Port Equestrian Association (WPEA)

A friendly club on the Mornington Peninsula with rallies on the 3rd Sunday of each month



Western Port Equestrian Association (WPEA) was established in 2009 when a small group of local riders saw the need for an equestrian club in the Mornington Peninsula/Hastings area that would cater to the needs and goals of their members, and in particular provide a club environment where families could ride together.

Our club provides a friendly environment where a diverse group of riders and horses can benefit from quality instruction and enjoy our grounds and social events. Our members are passionate about horses and participate in a wide range of equestrian pursuits.

Whether you’re a beginner or experienced adult rider, we welcome you to join our community. 




  • Ride at our rallies with discounted fees
    (& first option to sign up)

  • Compete for the club in our colours

  • Access our grounds for casual riding (when otherwise not in use)

Our membership year runs from 1st Nov–31st Oct.


We have both Full and Associate Membership options available.

Associate Membership is for those joining us as a second club (where HRCAV levy & insurance has already been paid with another club).

Both types of membership receive full benefits and have the same volunteer duty expectations.


All members are expected to support the club through volunteering at working bees and competitions that we run.

We typically hold 2 working bees per year, with the expectation that members attend at least one of these.

For more information on membership (including cost) or to become a member, click here.




​Held on the 3rd Sunday of each month, instruction typically includes flat, poles and showjumping/x-country lessons in small groups of no more than 4 riders.

Everyone is welcome and all riding levels accommodated. Prospective members are encouraged to attend a rally (unmounted) to view the grounds, meet our members and see a rally in action.

During winter if the grounds are especially wet, we may hold one or two rallies at a local indoor facility.


We run official HRCAV competitions each year, and in the last few years have held successful 3PE, Combined Training, Horse Trials and Dressage events.

Our members are often out competing across all HRCAV disciplines, and we support member participation in HRCAV Top Teams Trophy events.


Our committee and members organise social events (on & off horse) from time to time based on member interest.


In the past we've held new year trail rides, casual rides at the grounds, Xmas BBQ & photoshoot, and weekends away.

Information on upcoming rallies, instructors & events will be posted on our Facebook and Instagram pages, with registrations through Event Secretary.



Our home grounds are the Woolleys Road Equestrian Reserve, Crib Point, on the Mornington Peninsula.

Set on 25 acres, our beautiful grounds are superbly maintained through the support of our members, the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, the , and in partnership with the other equestrian groups we share our grounds with.

Facilities include a full Cross Country Course (6 grades), fully fenced 60m x 30m sand arena, riding trails, open grassed fields, yards, wash bays, club room, toilet and plenty of parking.




​WPEA's registered colours are Mint Green and Black.

In line with HRCAV rules, when competing in official events club colours must be worn on your upper body with the Club name or logo displayed on your upper body garment and/or saddle blanket (full dress rules can be found under Event Rules in the HRCAV Manual)


WPEA has a small selection of uniform items available for purchase (jackets, vests, polos, hoodies, caps and saddle cloth badges).

Members are encouraged to wear their WPEA uniform at rallies, however the only rally requirement is that heeled boots and approved helmets are worn while riding.

Contact our Uniform Coordinator for more information or to make a purchase.


WPEA uniform items can be worn at rallies and in official competitions, however many members also choose to have a fancier competition outfit made in styles and finishes that suit them, and their preferred discipline.

For inspiration on competition attire you can review the photos on this site or have a chat to some of our members.
