of High Country Working Equitation
Trainers, Clinicians, and Working Equitation Judges
What’s Working Equitation? WE was created as a way to enhance the riding techniques developed in countries whose riders use horses in different aspects of ranch and fieldwork. The goal of WE is to preserve and perpetuate each country’s style of equitation as well as their cultural traditions of dress and tack.
The best part about WE is that you can participate with any breed, tack or apparel. Whatever your style, WE deepens your connection with your equine partner through learning games and challenges.The three-phase WE competition combines dressage, ease of handling, and speed. There are many levels from Introductory through Advanced. There’s something for everyone!
Working Equitation is an established equestrian sport in more than a dozen countries so far, but this is a young, wide-open sport in the United States. Let’s get involved!
We hope you will join us in learning more from these experts from High Country Working Equitation.
