The Jefferson Equestrian Association’s vision for the Olympic Peninsula Equestrian Park is to balance the needs of the community with equestrian enthusiasts. Becoming a vital local recreational and regional destination as a public park and while doing so, touch the heart of our unique community.
We hope to develop programs that celebrate the area, appealing to and encouraging many different groups of people to enjoy the park and the healing power of horses.
Our initial permit allows us to move forward with building:
Parking for horse trailers
We support all local equestrian groups as we work towards our common goal:
A horse park on the Olympic Peninsula for everyone!
GROUPS WE PARTNER WITH:
BCHW, Buckhorn Range Chapter

December 3, 2019
Since our last notice there has been a positive change of heart. We are pleased to announce that 5 additional board members stepped up and were approved by the current JEA board on Nov 19, 2019. We are working to onboard them and put a transition plan in place over the next several weeks. We will update you soon as we know what the trail looks like towards the Horse Park initiative for our community. Yay!
