Looking to compete in working equitation?

Working equitation competition consists of four phases.

  1. Dressage – encourages harmony between horse and rider. Tests are conducted in a 20m x 40m arena.
  2. Maneability – horse and rider demonstrate how calmly, precisely and stylishly they deal with obstacles.
  3. Speed – a test speed, agility, athleticism using the same obstacles as the maneability phase.
  4. Cattle – tests the ability of the horse and rider to work cattle individually and with teammates.

Compulsory phases are dressage, maneability and speed.

Not sure what level is right for you? Refer to the working equitation RULES AND TESTS or come along to an Australian National Working Equitation Club event for help in gauging your skill level.
