Sarah Pinney earns Bronze Rider Medal!

Congratulations, Sarah Pinney, on earning your Lifetime Bronze Rider Medal in Working Equitation!

The WE United Rider Medalist Program is designed to recognize riders who demonstrate proficiency within a given Working Equitation performance level. WE United offers four distinct types of rider medals: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.

Scores must be earned at B-Rated, A-Rated, or Championship competitions officially licensed by WE United. Scores earned at schooling shows or at shows not affiliated with WE United will not count toward WE United rider medals. Rider medals are based on the eligible scores a Working Equitation rider achieves over time and need not be earned in one competition year or with the same horse.

The requirements for earning a Bronze Medal include:

BRONZE MEDALIST RIDERS – NOVICE LEVEL

  • Must have three (3) Dressage scores at the Novice level of 62% or higher from at least two (2) different WE United “r,” “R,” or “S” judges.
  • Must have three (3) Ease of Handling scores at the Novice level of 62% or higher from at least two (2) different WE United “r,” “R,” or “S” judges.
  • In addition to the above six scores, must have one (1) Dressage score and one (1) EOH score at the Novice level of 65% or higher.
  • Beginning in the 2018 Competition Year, a minimum of 2 Dressage and 2 Ease of Handling Scores of 62% or higher must be earned while competing in Novice B. The remaining scores needed may be earned in either Novice A or Novice B.
  • Scores for all of the above are only eligible if the rider successfully completed all trials in the competition in which the score was earned.
