Update 1 - 2015
January 7th, 2015
Welcome to 2015, here are some of our updates as we get ready to start the season!
We are excited to Welcome Elyssa Leitch as a Junior Representative this season! She and Josie will be sharing the role for this season until Executive positions come up for renewal for the 2016 season. If you have any suggestions for Junior activities this season look for one of them at the shows!
Every February the Executive meets to discuss show dates and any updates we feel need to be addressed before we start the season. We had a great meeting Sunday February 15th and have set all 6 dates for the season. We also have a new collaboration with SARI which will see the introduction of a Para Dressage division. Hoofbeats will also be introducing a Junior Lead Line Equitation for ages 3 to 7.
Para Dressage Division
New this season, we have responded to the need for more accessibility to Para dressage opportunities for local riders. The Para Division will be open to all age categories and will be available at all of our scheduled shows this season. We look forward to the opportunity to bring Para dressage to the South Western Ontario region and hope you will join us in welcoming Sari to our shows this season.
Junior Lead Line Equitation
This year the executive decided to offer a lead line class for those aged 3 to 7 years old. This class will be set up to allow a leader to walk in both directions with the rider to give them a positive show experience. We hope to use this class to foster and grow a strong love of horses and horsemanship for our future Junior and Senior riders! Any further questions regarding this class may be directed to a member of the Executive. This class can be found under the equitation tab on the entry form.
As always, we are looking forward to another great season. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and online here for more updates as they become available!
