R4 August 2021


By: Kiki Pantaze

Hello, Members of Region 4!
Things are ramping up for a fun Fall season of rated shows in Texas. I hope that some competitors from the other states in Region 4 and beyond will be able to join in our fun.

Haras dos Cavaleiros in Magnolia, Texas is in the books for a show on September 4. Entries are due on August 30.

The Haras Cup is happening over October 23-24, with three judges and prize money. It should be fun, with an exhibitors party at a fabulous venue with great friends. Go to the Event page at for more information as it becomes available.

November 10-12 brings the IALHA National Championship show to Fort Worth, Texas. The show is offering a USAWE-licensed Working Equitation portion that is open to all breeds. The Judge officiating will be Nichole Chastain Price. You can go to for the prize list and more information.
Highlander Ranch in Waco, Texas will host the final show in the 2021 Heart of Texas Series, December 4. Follow the HOT series page on Facebook for more information.

Feel free to call or text me if you have any concerns, want information about things going on in Region 4, or just want to chat.

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).
