Working Equitation

Among all the equestrian disciplines, Working Equitation (WE) is the most recently developed, having been first presented at the European Championship in Italy 1996. The goal of WE is to preserve the riding traditions and manner found in the fields and farms of Europe, especially Spain and Portugal. Although not as technical as dressage riding, WE, or what is traditionally known as DomaVaquera, holds its own system of performancecriteria. The ultimate goal is to have a functional horse or rather, a harmonic collaboration and trust between horse and rider. Riders are tested by performing flatwork through “natural obstacles,” laying emphasis on the quality of the horse’s training. Generally, WE competitions consist of four individual trials: dressage, ease of handling, speed, and cow trial.
