LIEC Show and Tell with Dale Irwin. This is a test riding clinic offered for those looking to improve their dressage test scores. Each test riding participant will have 30mins which will allow them to ride a test, get feedback and a mini lesson from the judge (Dale Irwin), and then ride the test a second time, or they can choose to extend the lesson rather than ride their 2nd test. Dale Irwin is an EC level 111 coach and certified judge.

2016 Year End Awards
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 http://www.lhequestrianmanagement.com 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!
