    USAWE Volunteers

    …are Hard at Work

      Your elected officials, regional directors and appointed committee members work countless volunteer hours processing memberships, recording horses, processing show licenses, gathering licensed show results, posting leaderboard points, planning licensed officials’ seminars, developing an International Competition program, developing educational opportunities for our junior, amateur and professional riders and all the administrative work behind the scene.  Volunteers are the HEART of USAWE.  If you are interested in helping out on one or more of our committees, please let us know!  WE can use your help!

      USAWE Logo design by Alexandra Crippen of Crippen Designs.

      The logo represents the four trials of Working Equitation and highlights the diversity for which the sport is known in the United States. 

      • The first image depicts a mule, being ridden in Western tack and attire in the Dressage trial.
      • The second image showcases an Iberian horse in traditional Iberian tack and attire performing in the EOH trial.
      • The third image shows a horse of indeterminate breeding and a rider in English tack and attire, competing in the Speed trial.
      • Together, all three riders represent a team competing together in the Cattle trial. Although the cow is not shown directly, the three teammates are working in concert. The image is intended to elicit the feeling of excitement and movement as the team moves their designated cow toward the holding pen to the far right, off the page. (Think of it as a "silent cow", much as the letter "e" at the end of a word is often referred to as "the silent 'e'" in recognition of its existence without being read aloud).
