Regional Reports

R6 May 2022


By: Kim Hillyer

Hello region 6 members!  We’ve had a great start to the spring season.  Lots of riding weather, and some shows and great clinics under our belts so far.  I just love seeing all the excitement for Working Equitation.  Keep an eye on the Region 6 facebook page to see what events are happening in our region.

I want to welcome our newest 2 Affiliate Organization to our region.  Northwestern Pennsylvania Working Equitation in Cochranton, PA, and Three Rivers Equestrian Association in Pittsburg, PA.  That’s 5 AO’s in PA!  How exciting is that.  This is the best way to grow our organization, as it helps people find where it’s all happening.

Lots of work is happening to make the Eastern Zone Championships a great success and a top notch event for those showing.  They are looking to have vendors attend as well as sell sponsorships.  If you know any business that would want to have a captive audience for 4 days, this would be a fantastic venue to set up a vendor spot.  We horse people love to shop!   The links for the forms for vendors and sponsorships are below.  Lots of unique sponsorship opportunities.  I just love that you can see exactly where your sponsorship dollars are going.  Share these forms everywhere!

Happy Riding, and I hope to see you out and about doing WE!

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).
