Hello USAWE! I think it’s going to be a full show season in Region 4.

Doreen Atkinson moving to the Weatherford area sure has sparked some interest. Her enthusiasm has helped USAWE gain some new members and an Affiliate Organization! I would like to welcome Donna Waldrup and 2

Irons Ranch into the fold. We can’t wait to have fun with you! For those of you in the Mineral Wells, Tx area, reach out to Donna. You can find 2 Irons Ranch on Facebook or on the Affiliate page on the USAWE website.

We have an event on the books, scheduled to take place at Holly Hills Farm in Benton, Louisiana on the weekend of April 1. They have had Doreen teach a clinic or two and are now hosting a show. I can’t wait to make the trip because I hear that Holly Hills is a beautiful venue and we get to spread the WE bug!

If anyone knows of any parties interested about Working Equitation in Oklahoma or New Mexico, please send them my way. I would really like to get something official going in those areas again.

If you have any questions or would just like to chat about Working Equitation, please give me a call.

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).
