If you attended the IALHA Nationals you'll know that Haras' trainer Antonio Garcia with Adagio DC was Champion at the Intermediate level, and Carlos Salguero took home the honors in the Novice Championship.  Rebecca Algar, who trained at Haras Dos Cavaleiros clinics last fall, was Champion at the Introductory level.  Join this winning team at Pin Oak on March 21 and 22!

Working Equitation World Champion Jorge de Sousa returns for a two-day Intermediate clinic January 12 - 13, and Haras trainers Antonio, Carlos and Tiago will repeat their extremely successful entry level clinics in group format on January 26 - 27 and February 23 - 24.

Working Equitation Updates

The 2013 Working Equitation competition sponsored by  Haras Dos Cavaleiros will be conducted according to the rules used at the IALHA 2012 National Show held in Fort Worth, Texas.  Three levels of competition will be offered, Novice, Basic and Advanced, each with $2,000 in available prize money. Be aware that there are several sets of rules for Working Equitation in use in the United States, and groups are working to consolidate them.


However, this work is not yet complete.  Our sponsor and show officials have elected to use the same rules most recently employed by IALHA in 2012.  Please be aware that there are changes from the rules used at Pin Oak last year.  Download the rules HERE or from our website and study them carefully.
