Judge and Technical Delegate Training Seminar for 2018.

Our very successful Seminar (sponsored by WEIAUSA) from last year is coming back to our first class host Haras Hacienda, October 16-21 during our National Championship Show.
In order to allow each candidate to have personal attention we have been limiting the class size to 10 candidates. This allows ample time to ask questions, have good discussion and allow each participant the opportunity to get a significant amount of practical experience. 
Another outstanding opportunity for all, is the option to attend as a silent auditor. This is a great deal for ANYONE who is interested in being at the top of their game in Working Equitation. It really helps you to understand exactly what the judges are looking for.
Don't delay in registering for this seminar as there is a lot of interest for it.

The Confederation for Working Equitation is pleased to offer our inaugural National Championship show. The Confederation has grown tremendously since it was formed by the founding organizations of WE in the United States (USFWE and WEIAUSA). We are proud of how our competitors have worked to develop their skills and qualify for this great show. The Confederation also would like to thank the many Group Members and show organizers who have created rated shows for the competitors to earn their qualifying scores.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the show and enjoying the friendships WE has created!

The Rules Committee felt it necessary to clarify some items within the Rule Book mid-year. The only two portions of the book that were affected were the main body of the rules and Appendix C, Score Sheets. A summary of the changes is included on page ii. All changes in the rules text are in red font. In Appendix C, the score sheets for EOH and Speed were modified to allow more room for notation. The Class Results Tally sheet was completely reformatted and now includes notes to facilitate the scoring process and handling ties. (Changes to Appendix C are not indicated in red.)
