WE United recognizes four levels of Judge Licensure for Working Equitation competitions in the United States:

  • Learner (L) judges are eligible to officiate over Working Equitation schooling shows.
  • Recorded (r) judges are eligible to officiate over B-Rated competitions, up through Intermediate level classes.
  • Registered (R) judges are eligible to officiate over A-Rated, B-Rated, and Regional Championship competitions at all levels.
  • Senior (S) judges may officiate over all WE competitions at all levels in the United States, with no restrictions.

Event organizers are encouraged to contact the judges directly if they are interested in having them officiate at an event they are hosting.

Honorarium rates will vary, based on the individual judges’ availability and proximity to the event, etc.  To help with planning / budgeting, we recommend that the following minimum honorariums be considered:

  • “L” Judges: $250/judging day
  • “r” Judges:  $350/judging day
  • “R” and “S” Judges: $450/judging day

Organizers should plan to cover travel costs (transportation, lodging, and meals) as well as an honorarium for each judging day.  It is generally better to pay reimbursable expenses (travel costs) separate from honorariums due to tax requirements.

INTENSIVE JUDGE SEMINAR

WE United hosted a five-day Intensive Judge Seminar taught by two WAWE International Judges from Portugal: Mário Pimentel and António Vicente. The seminar took place March 14-18, 2017 in Eugene, Oregon and included three days of classroom seminars (also open to silent auditors), one day of practice judging (at a licensed show), and one day of debriefing the judging experience, as well as oral and written exams.

Future seminars are being planned for 2018 and 2019. Stay tuned!
