Hello Region 6 members!
It’s been a busy summer so far this year. Our region will have hosted 11 Rated USAWE shows this year so far as we close out the month of August! There have been shows in VA, NJ VT, NH, and NY. On September 17 – 19, NEWE will be hosting the Regional Championships and A-rated show for Region 6, to be held in Centre Hall, PA. Qualified riders and horses will be competing in the Regional Championships, and anyone else is eligible to show in the A-rated portion of the show. If you or anyone you know is interested in a sponsorship opportunity for the Regional Championships, contact email@example.com. I’m sure there are plenty of volunteer opportunities at the Regional Championship show as well. Contact NEWE and let them know you are interested. There will also be 1 additional B-rated show in October in MD at Oak Springs Equestrian. Check out our Affiliate organizations to see what is being offered.
Welcome to the newest Region 6 Affiliate Organization. Synergy Working Equitation in Bloomfield, NY. Check out their Facebook page for details.
Check in with your closest AO to see what is going on. Lots of Clinics and play days being offered as well as schooling shows. As an Affiliate Organization, you can post your activities on the USAWE calendar, and also on the USAWE Region 6 FB page. If you have any questions, please reach out to me at r6director@USAWE.org, and I will do what I can to help you.
