Working Equitation entered Erica Peet’s life in 2013. She quickly fell in love with how the sport tests all aspects of horsemanship, fosters growth and improvement that rider and horse can achieve at a reasonable pace, and that it encourages fantastic sportsmanship. Erica and her husband love introducing this fantastic sport to people and have put on WE clinics all around the country. They also teach students locally, working towards progressing them up the levels. Erica earned her “r” Judge Card for Working Equitation in the fall of 2018 and with it she has judged WE shows all around the US.

Erica’s initial horse education exposed her to various breeds. Each breed’s differences helped her gain the ability to find a horse’s individual strengths. For years, specializing in Andalusians has been her primary focus. Erica has been successful at the International Andalusian and Lusitano Horse Association National Championship shows, earning Championship titles in Hunt Seat, Dressage Suitability, Saddle Seat, Dressage Sport Horse In-Hand and Best Movement. She has also competed in halter and driving. In 2008 Erica was recognized as IALHA Rookie Trainer of the Year and was IALHA Professional Horsewoman of the Year in 2014 and 2018.

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).
