The Confederation for Working Equitation and WE United are pleased to announce they will be collaborating this year to provide a combined U.S. Licensed Officials Training Seminar. The program will be held August 23 - 28, 2018 in Magnolia, Texas. The seminar will be led by WAWE instructor Antonio Vicente of Portugal, with assistance from Confederation and WE United instructors/representatives, and is sanctioned by both organizations for licensed officials training.
The Confederation for Working Equitation and WE United believe a U.S. unified officials program is a critical component in gaining international status for U.S. competitors, and that a combined program will ultimately benefit all U.S. working equitation officials and competitors. We are excited to be able to provide this first step toward that goal.
