Regional Reports

R3 April 2022


By: Chris Stanko

Weather is finally starting to get better in Region 3. Spring has sprung and is really trying to take hold. Kansas had a great clinic with 13 riders. Marie Maloney was the dressage clinician, Kate Fowler and Linda Frazier did the obstacles. (Marie is working on her judges license for WE). Then after lunch, everyone rode a course like in a show.

Kansas’s Rachel Zenger’s April 23rd licensed show has 23 or 24 entries!!! Great start to the 2022 show season.

Colorado had our kick off member play day with a turn out of 18 people. Kitty and Chris are holding an up your game clinic, (part of a series) These clinics are very intensive, covering the nuances of 4 obstacles and navigation.

Our 1st schooling show of the season is April 23rd at Hobby Horse Farm.

May 14 is the 2nd clinic of The Up Your Game series.

Region 3 is working hard to promote Working Equitation and grow the sport.

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).
