Price: $
Working Equitation was developed in Europe in the 1990's as a means to develop and test the skills of horses and riders who do field work (work with cattle in Southern Europe). The cattle are often aggressive. Traditionally, they are worked with a garrocha on a horse who is brave, obedient, agile and well trained!

Working Equitation combines dressage, train obstacles, finesee, strategy and speed into a sport that is a blast!
