New Working Equitation Professionals Program!

 

We are excited to announce our first new program for 2018... the Confederation Working Equitation Professionals Program!
We are excited to announce our first new program for 2018: the Confederation for Working Equitation Professionals Program! This new program recognizes and promotes qualified clinicians, instructors and trainers, who wish to grow the sport of Working Equitation.  These WE Professionals will be recommended to the public as having met the Confederation’s criteria for recognition. 
Participation is voluntary and does not imply that those who choose not to participate are not qualified.  However, becoming a Confederation for Working Equitation recognized professional has many benefits.
This program will allow such professionals to use Confederation logos, as well as have their events advertised on the Confederation website and Facebook page, and other social media sites.  The list of the recognized professionals will be posted on our website and will be available to our members.
If you have questions please email us at information@confederationwe.us

The “Confederation,” a Federal 501c3 nonprofit membership driving organization dedicated to the sport of Working Equitation in the USA. It is the culmination of the two founding U.S. Working Equitation organizations and includes several active Group Member organizations and hundreds of members. The strengths of each founding organization (WEIAUSA and USFWE), which include event organization, judging accreditation, individual memberships, group memberships, horse recordings, high point and medals programs, youth programs, show sponsorship, among others, were considered in creating an alliance that will serve to better facilitate the needs of current and future members.

The Confederation is a growing, positive organization which needs and values all of its individuals and members. The Confederation is dedicated to growing Working Equitation in the USA and hope that you will join us as a member, a volunteer, sponsor and/or as an exhibitor.
