About NEWE

The mission of New England Working Equitation (NEWE) is to promote Working Equitation by organizing clinics, demonstrations, and competitions throughout

New England and to educate the equestrian community of the benefits of the sport for training horses

and riders of all disciplines.


New England Working Equitation (NEWE) was created in 2018  by Kat Waters and Stephanie Hayes of Vermont.  Stephanie saw the immense benefits of the training of WE for both horse  and rider that led her to set out on a mission to educate herself and promote the sport in the New England region of the United States. Stephanie is the President of NEWE, a USAWE recognized WE Coach, has won Championships at the Regional and National levels and is a USAWE "L" judge.  She also serves on the Executive Board of USAWE. She travels extensively teaching clinics throughout the Atlantic region, coaches  students, and competes on her own horses, as well as managing NEWE competitions and business.


 NEWE is hopeful that by promoting this growing sport by organizing clinics, demonstrations, and educating the horse community of the definition and benefits of Working Equitation, that more riders and owners will be inspired to be involved in the sport. NEWE is an Affiliate Organization of the national governing organization.  USAWE.
