About the Para-Dressage Video Competition Series, Presented by Ride Every Stride
The Para-Dressage Video Competition 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. Participants compete against riders with similar abilities nationwide by submitting videos that are judged by EC certified Dressage Judges.

Video competitions encourage riders to develop effective skills and provide them with an opportunity to compete in a progressive and structured environment. They are a fantastic way to ensure that all riders across Canada, no matter how geographically isolated, have the chance to compete. Competition is an integral part of athlete development and provides riders with new goals, as well as a sense of empowerment and accomplishment.
