Regional Reports

R4 July 2021

Hello, Members of Region 4!

Summer is sort of a down time in Region 4 due to the heat and this year, the rain.

The new group in Shreveport, LA, had Doreen Atkinson in for another clinic, and they are really excited to get WE going in their area.

I heard that Valley View Equestrian Center in Stillwater, OK, hosted a schooling show. It was great to see some WE activity happening again in that area.

Fall looks to be busy in Texas, with Haras dos Cavaleiros having penciled in events with a show September 4 and the Haras Cup, October 22-24. The Cup will offer an exhibitors party and prize money. It should be a fantastic event.

The Heart of Texas series will close out their series in the fall, so stay tuned to Facebook for dates and locations.

IALHA is having its National Championship show in Fort Worth, November 10-14 and has a USAWE Open Breed WE show in the schedule.

Come on to Region 4 for some fun.

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).
