Western Dressage and Working Equitation
Western Dressage is very similar to traditional dressage with different tests at different levels offering increasingly difficult tasks to advance. Learn more at: westerndressageassociation.com.
Working Equitation has its roots in traditional Spanish cattle handling and includes several phases including a dressage test, ease of handing through obstacles, an obstacle speed test, and at the highest levels, work with live cattle. Learn more at: usawe.org.
Hunter/Jumper and Eventing
A hunter is judged in a show ring on jumping style, steady pace and smooth gaits, and general beauty and disposition, whereas a jumper is judged on time only over a course of arena jumps. Style doesn’t matter to a jumper, only that it clears the hurdles and while racing for the fastest time on the course. Learn more at USEF.org.
Eventing is a three phase event which includes a dressage test, a show jumping test, and the distancing cross-country jumping test where horses gallop at speed on outdoor courses while jumping solid obstacles and water hazards. Learn more at usea.com
