because horse shows should be fun

what is eventing kinderGarten?

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 kindergarten 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 judged schooling day.

We are always looking for VOLUNTEERS! If you would like to get involved (no experience required, we will teach you all you need to know), please sign up for the event you wish to volunteer for and we will be in touch.

Generally, we follow the eventing rules. Riders must wear appropriate helmets at all times and safety vests for cross-country (ASTM Certified). 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 clinic.

All competitors must have Ontario Equestrian memberships.
