Western Equestrian Society

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!

Hello,
Thanks for waiting on these and thanks for letting me wave a camera at you all weekend, I hope you like the results here:
https://www.jdrpictures.com/Event-Galleries/WES-National-Show-2018
Gallery for each rider, 30-40 shots in each for most riders, and an extra B&W version of each them also = 60-80 files.
Green “Buy Photos” button top right of each gallery page, £7/£9 jpeg individual (low res 1mp or high res 4mp), prints start at £8.
Whole Gallery option – prices the same as five individual jpegs for the whole gallery of up to 80 files. So £35/£45 for whole set. It is option number 2 “gallery download” under the “Buy Photos” button… BUT… for some weird reason that option doesn’t appear if you are using a mobile phone or tablet and holding it vertically. Go figure??!! Flip it horizontally or try a laptop/PC.
All shots approximately retouched already, over 3,000 files uploaded so no time to do more on all of them I’m afraid, any that are ordered get a second thorough checking and tweak if required.
Any retouch requests or questions or assistance needed please just call or drop me a line jamie@jdrpictures.com .
Don’t forget “Party In the Dirt”… last gallery… good times!!
Thanks again, enjoy, and good riding to all.
😊 Jamie”

What We Do


The Western Equestrian Society

We know that taking the first step into the world of western can be difficult, that’s why WES has also endorsed the Western Rider Development Programme, an online training programme that is available exclusively to WES members in the UK and Ireland.

… and a whole lot more…

So, if that sounds good to you…. why not be a part of it?

  • Promotes affiliated show classes up and down the country, with classes for the novice horse or rider right through to advanced levels – all WES classes are open to any breed of horse wearing western tack.
  • It promotes clinics with professional instructors from the UK and overseas to help horse and rider at any level.
  • It encourages the growth of the sport by recognising Instructors who have reached a satisfactory standard to teach Western Riding and who are only too willing to help you progress.
  • It circulates to all members a quarterly magazine with show results, reports of area and national activities.
  • It promotes a Trail Riding Award Scheme for those who hack out in Western Tack – with a presentation buckle award for 250 hours riding.
  • It provides a list of qualified judges and stewards to officiate at shows.
  • It organises an Annual National Championship Show and it maintains a National points table with annual Hi-point awards.
  • It provides activities, organised on an Area basis via a network of Area and County Representatives supported by the Society.

WES Trophy Buckle

WES has produced a customised trophy buckle which is available for members to buy to celebrate any award that they win at a WES event from a class win to a high point award.
