Well, 2016 is almost over (how’d that happen!?!).
Unfortunately we had to cancel the fall clinic as Hurricane Matthew decided not to cooperate with us.
But, since then we held our AGM and Awards night on November 10th. Check out our “Awards” Section for the list of 2016 winners. Photos from the night should be posted soon as well.
And you can see a list of our new board members for 2017 under “About Us”.
We came up with a list of events we’d like to hold in 2017, including a Training Event/Clinic in May, a Derby/Clinic in June, a Clinic in August and a Horse Trial in September. Exact details and dates are still in the works. We are currently in need of an Organizer and Secretary if we are going to have a Horse Trial, so if you’re interested or know somebody that is, please contact us asap.
Stay tuned for updates! We’re always open to suggestions so if you have any ideas, please let us know.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! See you all in 2017!!
Our final scheduled riding event of the year will be a great clinic with Rob Stevenson of Lakeside, NB.
A super deal for experienced and “newbies”!
Rob rode in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics for Canada in Eventing. He is a Level II Eventing High Performance Coach.
This will be a great clinic for riders of all levels and a perfect time to try out cross-country for the first time for those new to the sport.

Deadline for entries for the Strathgartney Horse Trial is this Saturday, June 18th. Get your entries in! It’s going to be a great day with some awesome new Cross-country jumps and courses, lots of work being done on the cross-country course.

Also, the address for the Strathgartney Equestrian Park is 18 Strathgartney Road, not 258 as in the omnibus. This is the exact coordinates: 46.203972, -63.346323 according to Google maps.
Welcome to 2016!!
Now is the time to start planning and preparing for the 2016 season. We have a great new Board of Directors which were voted in at our AGM held in November, and we have lots of plans in the works for another great year.
Check out our Events page and stay tuned for updates that will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
The Autumn Horse Trial is fast approaching. Get your entries in soon, avoid late fees and make the show committee’s jobs a LOT easier!

Nine Mile Creek PE C0A1H6
902 940 3652
Mail your entry to the secretary, OR email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, accompanied by an e-transfer for payment of your entry fee. If you email your entry, be sure to bring the hard copy with you when you check in at the Horse Trial
We also need lots of help getting things set up before the event, and during the event. So if you can help out, please let us know.
Hope to see lots of entries (and spectators!) on September 12th!!! New cross-country courses and jumps, lots of fun, come on out!
OH and there’s a new entrance to the Strathgartney Equestrian Park!! Turn onto McManus Road from the Trans Canada Highway (there is a left turn lane when coming from the East, and also a right turn lane coming from the West), at the end of McManus Road turn RIGHT onto Strathgartney Road, go to the end of the road and the new driveway is off the little roundabout at the end. Picture below, new entrance in Blue.
It’s time to get your memberships again. Please note that you MUST be a member of Island Horse Council in order to be a member of Horse Trials PEI.

We are going to have a Fun & Games night on March 28th, with an introduction to Eventing and videos, quizzes and door prizes, etc. If you would like to learn more about Eventing or just come have fun, please join us! It will be held at the Hunter River Community Centre starting around 6pm. Snacks and Drinks provided. Bring something to share too if you’d like. Bring all your friends too, anybody that might be interested, it will be a fun night!!
Well, our season for 2014 has wrapped up with a successful Autumn Horse Trial at Strathgartney Equine Park. I’d like to thank everybody for their help in making all our events happen this year, from the volunteers, sponsors, competitors, helpers, parents, everybody, you’re the reason we can pull it off.
Now it’s time to plan for 2015! If you have any ideas and can help out with anything, please contact one of the board members and let us know. We’ll be having our Annual General Meeting soon as well and will be voting in a new board of directors so if you’re willing and able to be on the board, we’d love to have you. Previous experience not required! There are no hard jobs. Our club cannot run without a board so it is vital we find some new members as some of our long time directors may need to take a break to focus on other things.
And last but not least, please vote for the Strathgartney Equine Park in the Aviva Community Fund. If we are not able to find funds to do necessary renovations to the park, we may not have the use of it next year, which would be a terrible loss to PEI’s horse community, especially the Eventing community.
You can vote for the park here: Strathgartney Equine Park Renovations
Thanks everybody for a great 2014 year, see you all next year!!
Well, our last event of the year is almost here! The Strathgartney Autumn Horse Trial takes place on Saturday, September 13th at the Strathgartney Equine Park in Bonshaw.
Hope everybody is ready!!
