We appreciate that for many, travelling to and from shows is not an option. Maybe you dont have transport, or lack the time to commit to the preparation and attendance of shows, maybe you just don't like the show scene (not everyone does!).
To accommodate this, WES operates a number of “virtual” shows each year that our members are invited to enter.
How Does it Work?
Virtual shows are really straight forward and easy to enter. You can participate at home or at your yard, anywhere you can find the space to complete the required patterns.
- Sign up to the Shows you wish to enter (list to follow at the bottom of this page)
- Pay your entry fee
- Download and learn the patterns for the classes you have entered
- Upload your entry to our website using our easy to use submission system
Once the entry date for the show has passed, the named judge will review each of the entries and provide comments before selecting placed winners.
Winners will be announced on the Website, Facebook and by email to the relevant competitors
- Competitors may show in either English or western tack
- Youth riders under 14 years of age must wear a hardhat
The human head is very vulnerable and may suffer considerable damage owing to injuries caused by a fall or impact from a horse. Injuries to the head may have long term effects and in some cases can be life threatening. It has been proven that wearing a correctly fitted, good condition riding hat can protect the wearer from injury or reduce the overall effect of any impact or injury. Wearing of Western Hats: Competitors at a WES approved show can wear a Stetson, youth riders aged 14-18 the disclaimer must be counter signed by a parent/guardian). Youth members under the age of 14 it is mandatory when riding that they wear an approved hard hat. It is recommended that approved hard hats are always worn whilst schooling and hacking out. Please make sure you are covered by your own insurance.
