Hello WE Friends!
Region 5 has been busy with shows and preparing for our first Regional Championship.
On June 12 and 13, there was a show at Brecksville Stables in Ohio where riders enjoyed a great weekend with judge Tarrin Warren. We had more than 15 youth and adult riders in attendance from several states competing from introductory through masters levels.
On June 25, 26, and 27, there was a show in Michigan at Rach Riding Academy with nearly 20 youth and adult riders from Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Pennsylvania. Despite rain and very slippery conditions, the group was able to participate safely and with many personal successes. Tarrin Warren returned to Region 5 for this show.
On July 3 and 4, the annual Independence WE-ekend show was in Illinois at Fox Valley Saddle Association. Kim Roe was the judge for this show. Despite hot weather, riders were in high spirits. There were youth and adult riders competing from introductory through intermediate B levels.
There are opportunities throughout the region for riders interested in learning more about WE. There are WE play days scheduled at Fox Valley Saddle Association (Illinois), practice sessions at KarMik Acres (Illinois), and a clinic scheduled in Minnesota (July 31-Aug 1).
Upcoming shows include:
July 24-25 – Show in Wisconsin at The Horse First Farm
A full list of shows and other events is available online.
We are thrilled to announce our first Regional Championship October 22 – 25, 2021 at the Hoosier Horse Park in Indiana. This is also an A-rated show. There are still volunteer and sponsorship opportunities!
