REGION 5

By: Becky Sherven

Spring (and summer, so it seems) are in full swing, which means we are starting to see more clinics and shows here in Region 5!  If you haven’t already, check out and follow our Region 5 Facebook page. 

It has been an initiative of mine to bring more activity to our Facebook page.  I have enjoyed sharing events, writing posts and seeing the response from everyone. 

I would love to share your event and / or pictures from your event on this page, so please contact me to do so.  Working Equitation is such a fun sport with a broad range of riders, horses and breeds, disciplines and experience. I think pictures and stories to represent this and show the fun “WE” have really helps attract new members and gets the word out on the community we have.

Before you know it, our show season will be well underway. It’s incredible how fast time flies. I’ve been privileged to be serving as a Regional Director for several months now. The time, energy, effort and care that the board members, committee chairs and committee members, as well as other volunteers put in is incredible… we are here for you! If you want to see something here in this newsletter, on Facebook, or give feedback, please reach out.

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).
