REGION 1

By: Heather Humelbaugh

Hello to Region 1! I am working on getting up to speed with this whole director thing! I’ve signed in to official email and have scheduled my first zoom meeting with the zone championship committee. I have also started a blog for region 1. The blog’s  intent is to share news, education and updates to Region 1. You can subscribe to it, and then it will land automatically into your email whenever a new entry is posted. You can find it here: https://workingeqregion1director.blogspot.com/ 

I wanted a place where I could share information and have it easily accessible in multiple ways. I also post it to the region 1 Facebook page (if you use FB please search and like that page). Region 1 held its first show of the 2022 season at the Oregon Horse Center on Dec. 11th & 12th. I saw some very happy faces on my FB feed. If I am counting correctly, there were 21 entries and several new competitor names on the list. Cool! As I get up to speed, I am hoping to become more familiar with all the inner workings of the Board so that I can assist our region with any issues related to our wonderful organization and sport. I’d like to thank all the outgoing directors  (most of whom are still heavily involved in the Board in some capacity) for all their hard work, and thank you VERY much to those who participated in Board elections. So. Happy New Year! Here is to a fun and eventful 2022 show season! 

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).
