We do working equitation!
We love WE because it engages our horses’ bodies and minds with elements of classical dressage, functional movements, and changes in speed and collection. Horses enjoy the working equitation obstacles, which are designed to give purpose to the arena work, rather than frighten the horse.
The cattle phase of WE is practiced here and included in every one of our shows because it’s challenging, entertaining, and excelent for the horses’ self confidence! Plus our cows enjoy a good romp. :)
Two licensed working equitation shows a year in Spring and Fall.
Our USAWE licensed shows take place at centrally located large venues in WA state. They are normally run as two shows per weekend to maximize competitors opporunties to earn scores and include an optional cattle trial and educational opportunities.
Everyone says our shows are a blast and we are excited to get to share our passion for WE with our Region 1 friends! Please feel welcome join us at any of our events as a competitor, volunteer, or spectator. We would love to have you be a part of the wonderful Washington WE community!
