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!

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

Youth Members

WES is very keen to encourage our Youth membership and offers a number of incentives for Youth members.

Our Youth Officer is currently David Brindley

Email Address – [email protected]

Our Youth members are able to benefit from an incentive scheme in the form of a clinic subsidy whereby youth members can reclaim 50% of their clinic fees at an approved WES clinic up to £25 per day. This is limited to a maximum of £25 per year. This can be used for either local or National clinics – but is excluded from the WES three day clinic which already has a discount for Youth members.

The only stipulation is that the clinic must be WES approved and the instructor must be a WES approved instructor.

Other incentives include:-

  • Subsidised places at the Morton Morrell Clinic
  • Discounted entry fees at the Nationals

If you require any further detail please contact David direct
