Ottawa Ont. Feb. 17, 2015 — Para-Equestrian Canada is pleased to announce the dates for the 2015 Video Competition series. Video competitions provide riders with an opportunity to experience competition conditions in the comfort of their home stable and on a familiar horse.   

The 2015 Video Competition provides the opportunity to:

  • Put your choreography skills to the test and let your creative side shine by entering the Freestyle to Music classes now included in the Sea-to-Sea Para-Dressage program.

  • Try out other Para-Equestrian disciplines in our Coast-to-Coast program with the inclusion of Para-Driving, Combined Jumping, and Reining classes.
  • Another new edition to the series is the introduction of Therapeutic Riding Centre (TRC) competition rankings. Entries and results from TRCs will be tracked throughout the competition series and updated on the Para-Equestrian Canada website, with an award being given to the highest placed TRC at the end of the year. This is a great team building opportunity and a way to create friendly competition between TRCs all over Canada!

    There is no better way to develop your skills while seeing how you stack up against fellow Para-Equestrian riders from the comfort of your own barn. Get your entries in for your chance to win great prizes and to see if you can top the podium!
