Hats off to WE United Publications Committee member Alex Tyson on the publication of her article on the growth of the sport in her home state of Michigan. The article appears in the March 2020 issue of Saddleup! Magazine, a tri-state publication with circulation throughout Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
This article came out just in time for the Michigan Horse Expo; which brings in thousands of people for a weekend full of educational workshops, exciting demonstrations, informational booths, and, of course, the opportunity to shop for hard-to-find horse items.
Alex is one of several WE United members staffing the WE United informational booth at the Expo. She and member Karen Rach-StClair have been the driving force behind growing the sport in their state, collaborating on multiple educational clinics and playdays, the Expo, as well as both schooling and licensed shows.
In addition to teaching people about the sport, the group is actively raising money to help support a large group of youth from their area hoping to compete in the 2020 North American WE Championship. Way to go, Michigan!
