The Western Equestrian Society (WES) was formed in 1985 to promote the discipline of Western Riding to the standard as practised in the United States.
We promote the sport for enthusiasts at all levels, whether pure beginners or seasoned competitors.
You can enjoy all of our ridden activities with ANY breed of horse or pony. Members participate with Highland ponies, Welsh ponies and cobs, traditional cobs, Haflingers, Arabians and also the various western breeds.
In fact, you name the breed and there’s probably a WES member out there riding it in a western saddle! We like a bit of variety!
We’d like to take the opportunity of thanking all the Members, Area Reps, Judges, Show Organisers, Stewards and Volunteers who have contributed to the Society during 2017. On behalf of WES Council may we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year. We look forward to seeing you at events throughout 2018
