Amie FulksThe competition is divided into 3 phases which are designed to test horse and rider through a range of activities. It combines flatwork movements and obstacle tests, inviting horse and rider to deal with a number of obstacles similar to those encountered when riding and working in the fields. Overall, the competition aims to promote good horsemanship, and a level of submission and control of the horse.

Working Equitation began as a competition in 1996 with the first European Championships taking place that year in Italy. It is now a recognized sport in France, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Brazil having secured considerable following in each of these countries.an image

The Working Equitation discipline aims at promoting competition between different ways of riding used in the fieldwork in various countries. Another of its special features is the fact that it constitutes a prime example of an ethnographic and cultural showcase, maintaining the traditional costumes and saddlery characteristics of each country. (excerpt from www.workingequitation-wawe.com)

In international competition, there are four phases:

FredericoDressage

The horses enter a 40 x 20 metre rectangle, to the sound of music and perform obligatory movements for around 7 minutes, to be assessed by a Jury of between three to five Judges.

Ease of Handling

Is a gymkhana type event in which horses must counter obstacles similar to those likely to appear in the field (e.g. crossing bridges, passing through doorways, etc). The manner in which the obstacle is transposed – depending on agility, submission, working attitude, and ease of movement and of handling – is scored by the Jury.

Speed

This involves obstacles from the preceding trial but with the objective of transposing the obstacles as fast as possible, without picking up penalty faults.

Cow

The Cow trial is performed by four elements – Team, and consists of separating a herd of cows which has been defined in advance.
