How do I join?

You can join by filling in the Membership Application Form (electronic). You must have proof of membership with either EA or ESA to be eligible to join the Equine Centre. You will also need to have your student card. Please email equine@csu.edu.au to make an appointment time.  You will be provided with a membership card which you must carry with you at all times.

How does it work?

You should always check availability of the facilities on the Booking Calendar before riding. The Equine Centre can also be contacted on 6933 2323 or equine@csu.edu.au. It is a condition of riding that your membership card is kept on you at all times. This must be produced if requested. If you do not have a valid card, you will be asked to leave. The Equine Centre grounds are only available to staff and students who are current members of the Equine Centre. All other rules and regulations of the Equine Centre must be strictly adhered to. When signing up, you will sign a code of conduct agreeing to abide by these rules.

Equine Students Association

The Equestrian Club is a social/sporting club at CSU Wagga Wagga. Its members are people with an interest in horses who want to get to know other people with similar interests. By joining the ESA you receive insurance that will make you eligible for the CSU Equine Centre Membership. The ESA have organised training days in dressage, eventing and jumping throughout the year.

Boarding at CSU

Horse boarding is available for students studying at CSU. The cost per day is $6.50. Demand for boarding is high, and there is often a waiting list. If you are interested in finding out more about boarding at CSU, please email equine@csu.edu.au
