The NBEA is financially supporting this new program in partnership with Horse Trials NB,
An autumn Long Term Equestrian Development (LTED) program for eventing is being designed to extend the training/riding season. This is an ideal time to build on the enthusiasm riders have developed this year to date! This program is being offered to all those interested in eventing, whether new to the sport, or seasoned competitors.
The first weekend clinic is being held October 17/18 and will be designed to allow participants to experience the sport of eventing combining a training opportunity with a modified 3 phase mini‐event.
This mini event is a non‐sanctioned schooling opportunity for riders to experience a Horse Trial (and/or a new level) with the benefit of on‐site coaching.
The LTED opportunity will then continue with further weekend clinics in November and December.
Dates are pending.
Monthly weekend clinics will continue over the winter months through to the launch of the 2016 LTED program in April 2016. Of note, these clinics (January, February, March) will not be subsidized by NBEA.
The 2016 LTED will kick off again in April.
With expanded opportunities to train year‐round, we do hope that there will be more individuals competing in eventing in the year ahead. As well, we hope that past competitors will see this as the opportunity to move up to a new level!
