Eventing Kindergarten Series

The Eventing Kindergarten Series is intended as an introduction to the sport of eventing, an opportunity for competitors to introduce their green horses to showing, and an opportunity to upgrade from one level to the next in a low stress, reduced cost, high fun environment.

Each show includes a Saturday schooling day where participants can ride in the dressage ring and school the show jumping and cross country courses with their coaches.  Sunday is a competition day.   For the first show of the season, the schooling day (Saturday) is sponsored by the Ontario Eventing Association(OEA) at a reduced cost.  Details of the OEA School Days can be found on the OEA Website.  Competitors in the Eventing Kindergarten show may also school in the dressage ring for no additional cost. 

Generally, we follow the eventing rules.  Riders must wear appropriate helmets at all times and safety vests for cross-country.  Show jackets and braiding are strictly voluntary.  Riders who fall off are eliminated but may, at the discretion of the organizers and medics, complete the phases of the show. 

All competitors must have Ontario Equestrian memberships.
