IL: Team KarMik Practice Session

Event Information

We’ve constructed an over-the-top, regulation obstacle course for the Working Equitation Shows, Practice Sessions & Mini clinics. The obstacles are key to practicing the Ease Of Handling and Speed Trials within Working Equitation. Our entire course or several obstacles will be set during each practice session for Team KarMik members. We will provide different setups with varied obstacles at each session. Come to one or come to all of the practice sessions. You can come to just have some fun with the obstacles or come with the intention of going on to compete and test your skills at schooling shows, B-Rated, Regional or National levels. The sky is the limit. We assure you our practice sessions and course will prepare you for anything you want to do in Working Equitation. Come join the fun. Look forward to seeing you. Cost is $40 per practice session with coaching included.

Sessions run from 11-2PM unless otherwise noted. Stalls available for an additional fee.

Pre-registration is required and for Team KarMik Members. Sign up and register online at:

Event Details

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).
