After watching that video, my curiosity is piqued! Looks like a lot of fun and something I'd love to try.

Going to bookmark the links so I can read more later!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I love how light on his feet (hooves?) the horses are! I wish I could get my horse to be that springy!

I enjoyed that too DA, and what a hunky looking horse! I think my little cutting bred cow ponies would have fun doing the speed component for sure, they move like cats on their feet.

Judging from the video, THAT is what "Western Dressage" should be!

Working Equitation- A sport of true horsemanship!

Hello. I just love when I run across equestrians who are finding out about Working Equitation for the first time. Hopefully I can answer some of your questions and get you as excited about the sport as I am!! YES, Working Equitation is in America, as the Executive Director of The United States Working Equitation Association USAWEA. I can tell you it is taking the country by storm.

At this time USAWEA in conjunction with 5 other entities as a combined effort will be acquiring the International sanctioning from WAWE the world association in Portugal. This sanctioning will allow us to field teams from the USA to International competitions in Europe, but other than that it will not change working equitation competitions here. The club in Florida denounced being a part of the WE governing body in the US and is only a private club.

At this time we have a clinic in New York planned for the first week in April, we also have 3 one day clinics in Arizona coming up in Dec. Jan. Feb. There will be a few clinics in South Texas early March before the big WE competition at the Pin Oaks Charity Horse Show in Mid March in Texas. Clinics are planned for Southern California in March April. Where ever you want a clinic we will do something for you. And of course all of your questions are answered promptly with a smile!

To answer some of your questions, Yes, this is an all breed, all discipline sport. You can ride in any tack and attire of your choice at the lower levels, Competitions in the USA are still few and mostly run by Iberian horse breed associations, because the sport originated in the countries of Spain, Portugal, Italy, and France. It is a sport to show the handability of a good working horse, what we call in the USA a ranch horse or versatility horse.

It is more fun then you have ever had on your horse no matter what you ride anything from Dressage, Reining to Extreme Cowboy Races, Working Equitation will take you to a new level and you will love what it does for your horsemanship. There are 3 phases in all standard competitions and a 4th phase at all championships. To see lots of pictures and gain more information please join our Facebook page: Working Equitation: The United States Working Equitation Association

RSS Tried to PM you but guess you must make 5 posts on this site before they allow you to PM. Think this is post #4. :) So all my contact information for the sport or arranging clincs is on the website.
