We would like to introduce riders and their horses to this fascinating and great fun sport.
working equitation is an equestrian 3 Phase discipline, well established as a recognized sport in southern Europe, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Belgium, Great Britain, Mexico, Brazil and Sweden.
It is based on methods to train horses working on cattle ranches in southern Europe, Mexico and Brazil. There are different levels of competition from novice to advanced, open to all riders and all breeds of horses.
The competition is divided into 3 sections, designed to test horse and rider, through a range of activities combining flat work (Dressage) movements, and obstacle tests, requiring horse and rider, to negotiate a number of obstacles similar to those encountered whilst working in the fields.
This competition aims to promote good horseman ship and a level of submission and control of the horse. It is great fun for horse and rider to participate, Spectators also enjoy this exciting discipline.
Our aim is to prepare not only for individual competitors, but also teams of 4 riders to compete against each other at venues throughout Australia.

   I would like to express my thanks to the organisers of Equitana 2013,

for inviting me to represent Working Equitation Australasia at Equitana for the first time.

Working Equitation is diverse, in that it differs from other sports. By using the 4 components, Dressage, Ease of Handling, Obstacles speed, Cattle penning.

So it was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate and explain how Working Equitation should be performed.

It created so much interest and excellent feedback. On behalf of my team of riders and myself thank you once again

 Gill Kennerley, Founder of Working Equitation in Australia and Australasia 2008

I would also like to say a big thank you to Renee, Mark and Beccara  and their horses for assisting me on our working equitation demonstration held at Equitana. And for making it a great susses. We have had so much excellent feed back. With many new riders wanting to try Working Equitation!
