Hello from Montana! Reporting to you from CNC 2022 where we are learning, meeting and sharing with W.E. enthusiasts from across the USA, and from multiple countries! So much fun. Check out the 2022 Cross-National WE Camp and Cup FB page for photos!

The biggest item to pay attention to in Region 1 is that we have not had any proposals submitted for 2023 Zone Championships. Proposals were due in May. If there are any interested event organizers…there is still time! Please let me know if you have any interest in hosting the Zone Championships in 2023. 

Our next Region 1 competition is scheduled for August 20 & 21 in Eugene, Oregon but keep your eye on the WE Idaho Oregon Trail Working Equitation FB page. This group is ramping up clinics, schooling shows and other learning opportunities in the Idaho area. 

That’s it for now folks! I am off to clean my pony and my tack before the Cup begins.

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).
