Arizona Working Equitation Club (AZWEC)

A fun “NEW” sport for you and your horse!

  What is Working Equitation (WE)? 

     WE is a fast growing riding competition that anyone can participate in, from beginner to advanced level riders, all breeds, and all disciplines.

     WE is an opportunity to test the skills and abilities of both the horse and rider for the qualities needed in a working environment.  Promoting good horsemanship while allowing people to ride in the traditional tack and attire of their heritage.

     WE is great fun for horses, riders and spectators!

     All breeds of horse are welcome to participate 

What makes up a WE competition? Four “phases”:

1.      Working Dressage (arena flat work)

2.      Ease of Handling (obstacle course)

3.      Speed (timed obstacle course)

4.      Cattle Handling (only at the higher level competitions)
