Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships to be held in Quebec

Equine Canada and the Quebec Equestrian Federation are pleased to announce that the fourth Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships will be held in Quebec at the Blainville Equestrian Park, October 3rd to 5th, 2014.

“The Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships is a significant event for Equine Canada and its Provincial / Territorial Sports Organizations and brings the next generation of Canadian champions together from all across Canada to test their skills development in a multi-discipline games environment,” said Al Peterson, President of Equine Canada. “I am very much looking forward to seeing all the athletes, coaches and support teams in Blainville, Quebec in 2014.”

The quality of the facilities offered by Blainville Equestrian Park, one of the country’s top equestrian venue which has hosted in the past qualifying FEI events in jumping, dressage, combined driving and reining, will make it possible to concurrently run competitions in jumping, dressage and reining, the three disciplines presented as part of the Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships.

“We are thrilled that Quebec has been selected to host the fourth edition of the Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships.  This event contributes to the development of our athletes who are offered a unique opportunity to take part in a different type of competition than what they are accustomed to during show season,” declared Paul Côté, President of the Quebec Equestrian Federation. “Everyone is committed to holding the Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships on a yearly basis.  We are glad to be organizing them for the third time and we are looking forward to hosting representatives from all provinces and territories across the country.”

The Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships brings together Junior and Senior teams representing the ten provinces and territories in Jumping, Dressage and Reining.  Riders compete as teams and as individuals.  Jumping courses are set at 1.10 m and  Dressage competitions use Level 1 tests.  The three top individuals and teams in each discipline are awarded gold, silver and bronze medals.  In addition, a Championship trophy is awarded to the provincial team with the highest cumulative number of points across all disciplines.
