2023 55+ BC Games Abbotsford BC

Four great days of 55+ Games Equestrian Competition were held August 23-26th at the Maple Ridge Equi Sport Centre. Disciplines included were Dressage, Western Dressage, Working Equitation, Working Hunter, and Driving Trials.

At the closing of registration, Equestrian saw 78 participants set to compete. Due to concerns surrounding air quality and the BC wild fire situation around the province participation numbers did drop with some last-minute scratches but the Equestrian events moved forward holding exceptional competition in all events.

A great time was had by all and everyone deserves huge congratulations. For some it was their very first horse show, or their horse’s very first horse show, it was amazing to see everyone’s hard work, love of their horses and of Equestrian sport.

A huge thank you to our Judges, Sport Chair: Debbie Rogal, Discipline Chairs and Volunteers. The success of the 2023 55+ Games Equestrian Competition would not have been possible without all of you.

Make sure to “Save the Date”. Next year’s 55+ Games will be held in in Salmon Arm September 10 – 14.
