WI: Sunrise Ranch Schooling Show

Event Information

We are excited to begin our season of Working Equitation events by having Emily Kemp

return for a Working Equitation Schooling show! This two-day event is the perfect way to

learn what this fun new sport is all about and practice taking part in a show in a relaxed

instructional way.

On Saturday, Emily will be offering private or small group lessons on which ever of the three

trials you wish to focus on. The Sunrise Ranch Ease of Handling course is designed

according to the official WE requirements and Emily Kemp will walk you through how to

accomplish each obstacle with excellence.

The new SRR dressage arena has a spectacular view of the White River Valley. Here Emily

will walk you through the new 2022 WE Dressage pattern or coach you in how to tackle the

cattle trial. Here at the Sunrise Ranch raises Scottish Highland cattle, and working them

from horseback is a skill we are enthusiastic to encourage through Working Equitation.

On Sunday you get to put all three phases together in the Schooling Show. Run like a

licensed show, the schooling show offers you and your horse the chance to experience

doing each part, Dressage, Ease of Handling, and Cattle Trial. You may even have a

“caller” guide you through the order of the course to support your navigation.

We will be limiting entries to this schooling show so be sure to sign up early. This is the

perfect fun weekend adventure for you and your riding friends!

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).
