REGION 6

By: Kim Hillyer

Hello members.  Eastern Region Andalusian Horse Club is working hard to make the Eastern Zone Championship a fabulous experience for everyone.  The Affiliate Organizations have met and brainstormed some exciting fundraising opportunities for the Zone Championships.  Keep an eye on the USAWE Eastern Zone Championship page for more information.

There has not been a bid submitted yet for the 2023 Eastern Zone Championships.  This can still be done even though we are past the due date!  I’d hate to see our zone not have a Zone Championship next year.  If you or your AO have been giving it some thought, please put together a proposal.  Maybe a few AO’s could work together and put on a championship show.

Still lots of WE activities going on in Region 6.  As we see events posted on FB, we share them to the Region 6 FB page.  Please feel free to reach out to me if you need help finding something your area.

Happy Riding,
Kim Hillyer
Region 6 Director

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).
