Regional Reports

R2 Jan. 2022


By: Robin Bond

Congratulations to all of the competitors from 2021. A fabulous year for USAWE. The leaderboards will be finalized shortly, if they are not already, so look for those year end awards soon!

Region 2 will be hosting the Western Zone Championship for 2022! Arizona Working Equitation will host the big four phase event at Westworld in Scottsdale, Az December 9-11. This promises to be a wonderful show. You will need two qualifying rides in order to ride in the championship show, but you can still participate if you can’t get qualified: there will be a rated show running at the same time.

Check the calendar for approved events coming up in your area. There are many schooling and clinic opportunities, as well as rated shows. Please be sure to contact me if you would like your event on the R2 Facebook page. If I don’t know you are having an event, I cannot promote it.

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).
