Regional Reports

R3 Jan. 2021


By: Cindy Branham
Welcome to Region 3!

Region 3 represents CO, KS, NE, WY, ND, & SD. As I write this newsletter column, it’s a cold snowy day in Kansas with 50-60 mile an hour winds! Not riding weather, even in my indoor arena! However, spring is just around the corner, right?

Colorado is already all geared up for better weather and the 2021 show season with three schooling shows and four B-rated shows scheduled. Their events kick off in April!

Kansas and Nebraska are looking forward to hosting B-rated shows at their State Fairs. Look for their schedules coming soon!

I am looking forward to 2021 and seeing the growth of Region 3 Working Equitation and the unified National organization, USAWE!

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).
