Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale Equine Trails Master


The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale (SJ) engaged Tredwell Management to develop the Equine Trails Master Plan, with the aim to expand strategic equine trail networks throughout the Shire.

The key project objectives include the following:

  • Establish where people are currently riding horses
  • Identify areas where people would like to ride horses
  • Integrate consultation findings from key stakeholders
  • Identify strategic constraints relating to horse riding in the Shire
  • Review environmental constraints relating to bridle trails and means of managing potential impacts
  • Identify broad strategies to establish and promote horse riding in the area
  • Develop an “aspirational” bridle trail network
  • Identify support infrastructure and establish preliminary constructed requirements for bridle trails
  • Formulate an implementation plan to deliver an integrated network of bridle trails in the Shire

A series of strategic outcomes will be developed to provide a framework for the Strategy and Action Plan. These include:

  • Integrated Planning & Management
  • Clearly Defined, Safe, Sustainable & Accessible Walking Tracks
  • Information, Promotion and Marketing
  • Management and Maintenance
  • Community, Tourism & Economic Development

A Strategy and Action Plan will be underpinned by the following principles which have been developed to guide the planning and management of equine trials within the Shire.

  • Environment and Sustainability
  • Access and Safety
  • High Quality and Interconnected Network
  • Local and Visitor Economy
  • Collaboration, Management and Governance
  • Clear Communication and Education
  • Recognition and Advocacy
  • Support Infrastructure and Amenities

The Strategy and Action Plan will outline the prioritisation of strategies and indicate the costs and timeframes for specific actions.
