Future Executive Board members will be appointed by the sitting Executive Board.

The Confederation for Working Equitation is a  unified governing body for the development and further promotion of Working Equitation in the United States.   

The Confederation’s original Executive Board consists of four original directors nominated or elected by the boards of the founding organizations (WEIAUSA and USFWE: representing six other founding organizations in the USA).

To ensure the work of the Confederation is guided by the membership, each of these committees will be further staffed with volunteers.  Members interested in volunteering for committee-work should contact Executive Director Tarrin Warren: information@confederationwe.us.

The functions of the founding organizations under the Confederation umbrella have been defined to best utilize the strengths of each organization.
