One of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s premier equine facilities has received a boost with the installation of new fencing at the Serpentine Sports Reserve.

Funded through a $68,000 State Government election commitment and delivered by the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, the extensive new fencing will help to ensure the safety of horses and people while improving the standard of the facility.

The Serpentine Sports Reserve is a multi-use public open space and is home to several of the Shire’s local equine clubs, including the Serpentine Horse and Pony Club and Serpentine Foothills Polocross Club.

Hundreds of horse riders access the facility for leisure riding, club meets and competitions.

The fencing upgrades are set to open further opportunities for the community to make use of the facility and align with the Shire’s goal to support and enhance the diversity of equine activities within Serpentine Jarrahdale.

“The Shire works very hard to support the equine community and I thank them for delivering an attractive and robust fencing solution.”
