Riders showcase the partnership and their level of training in a working dressage test conducted on a 40 x 20 metre dressage arena.
Riders negotiate a course of obstacles which replicate what they would encounter doing farm or stock work, or out on a ride. Phase 2 features manoeuvrability while phase 3 is a showcase of speed.
Working Equitation features a unique cattle event which is something of a cross between cutting, drafting and team yarding. Riders work as a team of 4 to showcase the versatility of their working horse.
