About the 2017 Para-Equestrian Video Competition Series
The 2017 Para-Equestrian Video Competition series allows athletes to experience competition conditions in the comfort of their home stable and on a familiar horse. The series provides riders of all levels and abilities with the opportunity to experience competition conditions in the comfort of their home stable and on a familiar horse. Riders are judged by certified Para-Equestrian judges against other similar riders across Canada and are eligible to win great prizes.
Video competitions encourage riders to develop effective riding skills while competing in a progressive and structured environment. Competition is an integral part of athlete development and provides the opportunity to set new goals and develop a sense of empowerment and accomplishment.
All riders with physical and/or intellectual impairments are welcome to compete in the video competitions. There are two types of classes offered – Coast-to-Coast and Sea-to-Sea. The Coast-to-Coast classes provide riders with an opportunity to compete in a variety of disciplines. The Sea-to-Sea classes are offered for riders who wish to compete in the more competitive para-dressage stream. All classes are open to both classified and unclassified riders (including those with intellectual impairments).
The 2017 Video Competition provides the opportunity to:
- Put your choreography skills to the test and let your creative side shine by entering the freestyle to music classes in the Sea-to-Sea Para-Dressage program.
- Compete for high point championships within the Sea-to-Sea classes.
- Participate in test of choice classes – ideal for athletes who have competed up to the EC Gold level.
- Try out other Para-Equestrian disciplines in the Coast-to-Coast program, which includes para-driving, combined jumping, and reining classes.
