COMPETE AND LEARN

COMPETITION

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.

Participating in local competitions may lead you to aspire for our State and or National championships. UPCOMING EVENTS.

Hi Merindah Thomson yes, course is correct. You will enter through the start cones and then proceed thru the obstacles in numbered order, entering with the number on your right. After completing all obstacles in order, exit the course thru the exit cones. Specifics as to correct way to ride the obstacles are described in the Rule Book (Participant or Competitive). It is your decision as to how to progress from one obstacle to the next, as long as you don't ride thru a live obstacle. You may want to consider what lead you are on, how your exit from an obstacle sets you up for the next one, etc. Please have a good review of the Rule Book, it's full of important info. Hope you have fun!

Is the closing date a typo?

Working Equitation ANWE Ltd please could we have some help interpreting the course map? Is this pic correct? We are not sure which direction to pass through the start/finish flags, or to enter the obstacles without the benefit of a course designer setting it out for us. If there is a set direction, if it is possible to have some direction arrows added to the course plan, that would be superb 🙂 Really looking forward to competing!

Jenny Borthwick FYI this is what we were talking about.
