The versatile sport of Working Equitation gets its origin dating back to the traditional European form of riding.
The agricultural work with the use of the horse for herding animals calls on obedience, skillfullness and oversight as part of the main components of the task. These attributes are called upon for the Working Equitation class and have to be displayed in each specific discipline.
Through progression of the industrial world, working cavalry has reduced over time even though this art is still practiced in some parts of Europe.
The Working Equitation Class preserves this piece of European culture while proving extremely technically difficult at the expert level.
