REGION 6

By: Kim Hillyer

Finally, we are getting colder weather, and some trees are just now changing colors (in South Central PA).  It has been good riding weather where I live.  The show season has wound down in our region and planning for the new year has started.  Many of the AO’s have had planning meetings and are getting shows on the 2022 calendar.  It looks like 2022 in Region 6 is going to be busy.  Lots of show and clinic opportunities already on the calendar.  I’m sure there will be more to come.

The newsletter is going to look a little different.  Because of the size we are trying to do some things differently to make it more manageable.  This month I tried to have the AO’s post their updates on their Facebook pages.  The updates were then shared to the Region 6 Facebook page.  So, that is where you need to go to get the updates from our AO’s.  If you have any concerns or suggestions please feel free to contact me and I will see what we can do to address those.

I hope to plan some Zoom meetings for the region over the winter.  So, keep an eye out for invitations to those.  It will be a great opportunity to visit with other Region 6 members, and to share ideas, and concerns.

Remember to take a look at the Region 6 Facebook events page.  Biddie Lowry is going to be keeping this page updated so you can look there for shows and clinics happening in the region.   You can also go to the calendar on the USAWE website so see what is happening.

If you are not part of an Affiliate Organization, but you are organizing WE events, be sure to let me know so we can be sure they are put on the Region 6 FB page.  I often have people asking what is happening near them.  If I don’t know about it, I can’t sent people your way.

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).
