Introducing the Equinety Vancouver Island Dressage Series
LH Equestrian Management is excited to announce the new Equinety Vancouver Island Dressage Series (VIDS)!
The 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!
