Welcome to OSWE

 At OSWE, we are committed to getting you started:  learning, practicing and showing Working Equitation.

Working Equitation is a fun and inclusive equestrian sport, and is quickly gaining popularity in countries around the world. This sport combines the best equestrian activities with a structured program of learning for horses and riders of all disciplines. It offers development of the whole horse and rider based on the principles of classical training, with clear and measurable goals. The Ease of Handling (obstacles) create challenges that test horse and rider skills.  What we see develop is a beautiful partnership. 

Many different riding disciplines  can compete, including gaited breeds.

Our Society is focused and committed to helping our members learn, by offering educational content and creating opportunities. OSWE is building the  Ontario WE community with educational programs and opportunities to practice and show. We want our members to learn safely, correctly, achieve their goals in the sport and most of all, have fun!


2023 Memberships renewals are due by January 15 ,2023  We sincerely thank all our members for the great start in 2022. Your contributions and involvement in OSWE has allowed us to fund many of our up front operational costs, reach out and build working equitation in our Ontario communities. We have big plans for 2023. Your renewal helps us continue to offer education and opportunities!
