About the event
Working Equitation combines the fundamentals of dressage with the precision of riding through a series of obstacles. The results are horses and riders that achieve remarkable relationships by doing something that is incredibly fun! For this Workshop we will be focusing on the Ease of Handling portion of Working Equitation. The horse and rider completes obstacles requiring precision such as opening and closing a gate, crossing a bridge, backing through poles, and other challenges one would encounter on a ranch or in a field.
The sport originated in Spain, Portugal, Italy and France from cattle ranchers who manage their livestock from horseback. The first competition was held in 1996. Riders compete in the beginning with the simplest gaits, leading to the upper levels where the horse will perform the trials in the highest degree of collection, precision, speed and partnership.
Horses of every breed and size, including gaited horses are excelling in the sport.
This Workshop is open to everyone-all ages and stages of horse and rider combo! Children and adults are more than welcome.
