Spring Ahead

We’re well into 2017 and it’s time to get your memberships up to date. Don’t forget you will need an Island Horse Council membership as well to join Horse Trials PEI. Late fees come into effect March 31st, so don’t wait.

We have a busy season coming up with lots of great clinics, training shows a derby and a horse trial. Time to start getting you and your horse in shape, it’s going to be a great year.

End of Year

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!!

Eventing Clinic

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.

Strathgartney Horse Trial

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.

Please note that the omnibus info is incorrect and this is the correct address for the Secretary:

Kara Grant – 36 Southampton Drive, Stratford, PE C1B0A6
Tel: (902) 629-0548 Email: karagrant36@gmail.com

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.
