COMPETITIVE

In case you got here without reading the first part you can go there and choose the tab that best describes you, then come here.

Competing in Working Equitation is not like any other discipline. I'd have to say eventing is the closest, but it requires a horse and rider who both like to jump.

The great thing about Working Equitation is the variety in the different trials. With Dressage, obstacles judged like Dressage and obstacles judged at speed as the mandatory trials, most horses coming to the sport will do better in one of them. This allows different types of horses and different types of riders to compete on equal grounds.

Where else will you see English, western and traditional tack in the same class, being judged equally.

But maybe one or more of these sounds like you...

You want to start showing Working Equitation but there is a lot to learn.

You've started to show but you keep getting disqualified and you'd like to get better so you can finish a show.

You've been showing at the same level for awhile now and just can't seem to get your scores up to move to the next level.

It's fun watching your friends win, but You'd like to win.

I Believe Everyday People Can Develop Extraordinary Horses
Without either of them Feeling Confused or Pressured

Rider Carrying Garrocha

"Thank you for all I managed to pick up from your Working Equitation Mastery, Course design and rider strategy, your free tips and discussions.
Without you we would have stayed the big wonky draft (half Clydesdale, half hackney horse).
Now we made L2 Grand Champion Region 6" 

Francine King ‧ Working Equitation Mastery Student

If you're just getting started with showing, or you're getting disqualified because you you don't know the rules, the Intro to Working Equitation Course Design and Riding Strategy (see below) is a good place to start. And a few times a year I run the Rider Strategy Camp that gives you practical experience of choosing routes to ride on maps based on your horse's level. You get valuable feedback to help you develop strategies.

Rider Strategy is also a part of the Course Design Camp where you not only get feedback on your rides but also learn to design courses that fairly test horses. This is useful in setting courses for others but also gives you insights into designing courses to further your horses's training.

Are you finding it hard to practice because you...

  • Don't have a obstacles?
  • Don't have much room?
  • Don't have a WE coach?

You're in the same boat I was in when I created the Do It Yourself Working Equitation course (see below).

I used the stations, designed with minimal equipment, in a limited space to prepare a young borrowed trail horse for her, and my, first Working Equitation show at the WE United Nationals and A-rated show in Oregon.

Baybee won her division. So if any of those things are holding you back, check out this course. You can also get it for free with the Working Equitation Mastery For The Rest Of Us program.

Are you getting disqualified because your horse won't complete an obstacle?
 Or you just can't increase your scores and WIN?
 And you don't feel confident moving on to the next level?

I created the Working Equitation Mastery For The Rest Of Us online program for you (see below).

 I drew on the skills I developed training hundreds of horses, and broke down the training of each obstacle and maneuver into the small achievable steps I would use when starting a horse.

Regardless of how much obstacle experience your horse has up to this point, if there is a problem, it means something is missing.

These are the same steps I would take a seasoned horse back through to find what was missing that was holding them back.

Often steps are skipped in the original training because the horse is a natural. Later it creates a problem that has to be solved before they can progress.

But even if you have experience, if you're having difficulty, the steps have been laid out like a path for you to follow. Don't skip any no matter how insignificant they seem. There is something missing and these steps are designed to help you pin-point what it is.

And if you need more help, it's only a keyboard and camera away.
The Mastery program comes with a community to ask your questions and have videos reviewed.

I strongly believe that YOU can learn to train your horse online,
If the support is there.

And that is what makes my programs work.
