Why are National Show entry fees so expensive?

In an effort to help keep everyone informed, We want to publish the preliminary expense sheet from the National Show.  Not all the bills are in yet, but we want to get this information in front of you.

Keep in mind without our generous Platinum sponosor, Haras Hacienda, this show would have come in at a loss.  Haras Hacienda donated the arenas, ground crew, stabling Thursday through Monday, the cost of the Veterinarian, the cost of 1/2 of the show manager, food for the volunteers and staff at cost, obstacles, lodging for officials and volunteers, and more.  They are a huge reason that the show was able to happen.  

The show was able to stay in the black due to all of our sponsors.  Please be sure to visit their web pages, support their businesses and let them know how much we appreciate them.

We are looking forward to the 2019 National Show.  Stay tuned for details.



The Confederation for Working Equitation welcomes our newest regional directors: Maria Blackstone representing the Southeast and David Washburn representing the Northeast.  Both of these new directors have been promoting and driving the growth of working equitation in their areas and we look forward to adding their wisdom, enthusiasm and work ethic to the board!

“I am really looking forward to the opportunity to help promote this amazing sport in our region.” - Maria Blackstone

I would like to thank members of the Confederation on my nomination to represent Region 6. I would be honored to represent the region in this capacity. I have enjoyed this past year of competing and getting to know many of the members and fellow competitors. The beauty of this sport is the bond created not only between horse and rider, but also between competitors.
Working Equitation has given me a reason to ride and goals to strive for. I would love to share my passion for this sport, by promoting more shows and clinics in the North East.

Thank you,
David Washburn
