Fall News and Events

Dear LIEC members,

The board of LIEC would like to thank all of our members and volunteers for such a wonderful 2017 summer show season.

LIEC has a couple of events happening this fall that we are looking forward to. The first one is coming up quickly on Tuesday, Oct 17th with Dr. Danica Olenick from Swiftsure Equine Veterinary Services. She will be speaking on a hot topic...Common Lamenesses in Dressage Horses: Risks, Sources and Treatments. It will be held at the Saanichton Fairgrounds in the Oak room. Doors open at 6:30pm with the lecture starting at about 6:45pm and going until about 8pm. There is no cost and it is open to both members and non members of LIEC. If you are interested in attending please contact April Sheldrake at: so that we can have enough chairs set up to accommodate everyone.

The last LIEC function for 2017 will be our Year End Awards Banquet and AGM on Friday, Nov 17th. There will be lots of great food, door prizes and volunteer gifts. We are fortunate enough to be able to have it at Glen Meadows Golf Course again this year. They are located at 1050 McTavish Road, Sidney, BC. Please see attached invitation and RSVP form below for more info.

Please note: LIEC has decided that year end awards will be based on scores from 2 shows (with different judges) due to the reduced number of shows held for 2017. Previously, members needed 3 scores from different judges to qualify for year end awards.

HCBC will be hosting a one day education event in Courtney October 1st which is part of the Community Talks Travelling Road Show. Admission is by donation at the door to Cowichan Therapeutic Riding Association. For more information please click on the link below

Vancouver Island Dressage Series

The Equinety Vancouver Island Dressage Series is a year-end awards program created to encourage attendance at local dressage shows in order to support local clubs and volunteers. As well, the Series provides Island riders at all levels with attainable goals that will hold distinction in the Island sport community without having the requirement and high expense of leaving the Island.

All that is required from the riders is that they attend three shows across the Island with two of the shows located in different regions (north Island, mid Island and south Island). Eligible shows are Horse Council BC recognised shows and Equine Canada bronze and gold shows. All of the details are listed on LHEM's website There will be great prizes!

Thank you to our title sponsor Equinety Horse Products, the world's #1 horse supplement and the preferred horse supplement of Equine Canada!

Please help spread the word about this new and exciting opportunity to support dressage on Vancouver Island by forwarding this newsletter to a friend or sharing it on Facebook!
