by Cheryl Erpelding

After attending a Working Equitation clinic in North San Diego County last year, Polly Limond was hooked. A top dressage trainer and competitor since the 80s, Polly loved that Working Equitation took dressage to the next level in a very fun way.
Obstacles such as bridges, slaloms, small jumps, and maneuvering around 55 gallon drums are just a few of the challenges that riders are scored on in the various classes offered in the fast-growing discipline that was started in 1996 by riders from Spain, Portugal, France and Italy.

by Jack Burns

It’s no surprise Working Equitation is gaining popularity in the United States because of the broad appeal that it has with so many equestrians. It is a sport that has developed out of the traditions of classical horsemanship and traditional ranch work. It combines the formality, detail, and rigor of gymnastic arena work with the practical and utility work of negotiating obstacles inspired by what would be found around a working ranch. Riders are outfitted according to the tradition in which they train: dressage, western, or native Spanish or Portuguese attire.
