Canadian Fortnight to Provide One-of-a-Kind Experience to Dressage Athletes and Enthusiasts


Dressage Canada is pleased to invite dressage athletes, officials, sponsors, owners, and enthusiasts to participate in the inaugural Canadian Fortnight event, scheduled to take place from Jan. 19 to Feb. 2, 2014 in Wellington, FL, USA.

This event, which coincides with the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (AGD) winter competition series, will provide recognition, development, and support to Canadian dressage athletes, while also giving dressage enthusiasts, owners, officials, and sponsors the chance to benefit from networking and education-related opportunities.

The Canadian Fortnight will present information sessions and panel discussions with FEI officials and experts in numerous fields of interest, including:

  • Equine and human nutrition
  • FEI veterinary care
  • FEI judging
  • Media and self-marketing
  • Sport psychology

Many sessions will be open to the public for a nominal fee, and package rates will be available. Organizers are also working to line up exciting opportunities for the public, including guided tours of prestigious stables in Wellington, headset commentary by expert riders, trainers and judges during live CDI-level competition, meet and greet sessions with top Canadian dressage athletes (human and equine), and much more.

Join Dressage Canada for the Canadian Fortnight event and capitalize on the opportunity to leave the cold Canadian weather behind for a few weeks in order to visit the “Winter Equestrian Capital of the World.”

Learn from top industry experts, FEI officials, and Olympic athletes, and witness some of the world’s best international dressage competition as athletes go head-to-head in competition with the goal of qualifying to represent their country at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Normandy, FRA.

Mark your calendars, and watch for additional details and confirmed scheduling to be released in the next few weeks.
