WE United strives to recognize the performance achievements of horses and riders who compete in Working Equitation in the United States, as well as honoring the achievements of our International members competing under WE United licensed judges. The goals of our Awards programs include promoting the sport, encouraging horse and rider development, and honoring the incredible partnerships that exist between Working Equitation horses and riders.
WE United currently offers four Performance Award programs for our members:
- WE United Annual Leaderboard
- WE United Breed Performance Awards
- WE United Rider Medalist Program
- WE United Partner Up Team Challenge
In addition, beginning in 2019, we will be offering a High Point Junior Rider award. The winner will receive $300 as well as a nice award to recognize their accomplishment. All members who are under 18 as of December 1, of the competition year (and therefore qualify as juniors) will be eligible. Points earned at all licensed WE shows with a WE United judge will count, regardless of whether the points are earned in a level specifically set up for juniors or are earned while riding against adults. All points earned during the competition year will count. The winner is the junior WE United member who earns the most points in the Competition year. This award is sponsored by Barbara Price.
These programs are reviewed on an annual basis, and additional performance programs are currently being developed. Any horse or rider who is a member of WE United is eligible to participate in these programs at no additional cost as outlined in the program descriptions. A complete list of current WE United members is available online, here.
To facilitate performance tracking, WE United provides free horse recording services for our members. To enroll your horse, simply fill out the required information on our Horse Recording Form. You can review a listing of all horses with WE United Recording #s here.
