The WE United Partner Up! Team Challenge is a program introduced in 2018 to help encourage and support those new to the sport of Working Equitation as they get involved.
The 2018 Team Challenge program provides a special awards category for partners. Here’s how it works:
Two riders form a team. At least one of the riders has to be new to the sport (never having competed in a licensed WE competition prior to signing up for the program). The other can also be new or can be an experienced WE competitor. Teammates sign up for the program by mailing in the sign-up form and sending the $25 (per team) enrollment fee at least 7 days prior to the first rated show they will be attending.
Enrollment fees will be used to purchase awards for those entered (the more teams that enter, the nicer the awards can be!).
Partners compete at WE United licensed competitions throughout the year. Every competition where they both compete can count for the year-end placings. WE United will track each teammate’s top 3 Dressage and Ease of Handling scores, providing a link to the cumulative scores here on our website.
Year-end placings are determined by the highest Dressage/Ease of Handling average, based on the pairs’ top three scores. In the case of ties, Dressage scores will beak the tie.
