R5 Nov. 2022


By: Becky Sherven

Snow is flying outside my window already here in southern Wisconsin, and it appears all licensed shows are wrapped up in our region… this year has flown by!

Many of our R5 members travelled recently to the Eastern Zone Championships in Bulls Gap, TN.  A quick shout out to the many R5 Youth members who travelled to this event – Congratulations!  And an equally important THANK YOU to the parents, mentors and chaperones that helped these youth travel and participate.  It has been so great to see the pictures of this event – what an absolute success!

As the year wraps up, USAWE is continuing to be an extremely busy organization with the election well underway for candidates for open roles in 2023.  USAWE also recently published the 2023 Rulebook which I would encourage everyone to read through and familiarize yourselves with for the upcoming show season.

Show Managers in our region are also beginning to look at 2023 show dates.  As you gear up for show series and specific events, please reach out to the Region 5 Facebook page to share your event details.

Wishing everyone a wonderful start of the Holiday Season, which hopefully can include spending time with family, friends and horses!

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).
