OR: WE Oregon Show & “Learn the Tests” Dressage Clinic

Event Information

Come join us for a three-phase WE show on Saturday (Dressage, Ease of Handling, & Speed) and then stay over to learn the new WE Dressage tests from Polly Limond, one of the “Senior” Judges who created them! These are the dressage tests that we’ll be using starting with our January 2023 show, so this is a great opportunity to get a jump start on the new competition season!

Saturday’s competition will be licensed by USA Working Equitation. You horse MUST be recorded with USAWE to compete.
We can accommodate a maximum of 23 riders in Saturday’s show and 16 riders in Sunday’s clinic.
Entry Fees:
Saturday WE Show Entry Fee: $250 (includes first bag of shavings, and stabling from Friday, 1 pm (honestly — NO EARLIER — if you arrive prior to 1 pm on Friday, please plan to pay a ‘haul in fee’ to OHC and amuse yourself in the main facility rather than coming to the Prairie Arena). Additional bags of shavings can be purchased on site for $10/bag.

Sunday Clinic – $100 for riders, $50 to audit if you’re not riding.
Tack Stall: $100
(OHC Boarders who do not need stabling can request a $100 discount because they don’t need a stall)

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).
