REGION 2

By: Robin Bond

Region 2 has had a lot going on!

The Judges’ Seminar at El Campeon Farms, Thousand Oaks, California was well attended. WAWE Judge Antonio Vicente, USAWE S Judges Nicole Chastain and Doreen Atkinson lead amazing seminars to improve consistency in judging across the country.

Kudos to the LOC for arranging an incredible event!

The CNC in Missoula, MT is going on as I write. If you have not been able to attend a CNC, I highly recommend it. It is an incredible gathering of WE enthusiasts form around the world.

I will finish with a big congratulations to Miguel Undabarrena for qualifying to ride for the United States at the Championships later this month in France. Miguel will be the very first US rider to represent us!

Please support your local horseshows, wherever they are in the region.

My best to you all,
Robin Bond

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).
