About the CET

CETIn 1952, Canada fielded its first Olympic Equestrian Team in Helsinki. Since then, the sport has grown exponentially, and today Canada regularly fields athletes and teams for international competition and major games around the globe, including the Olympic Games, Pan American Games, FEI World Equestrian Games, FEI World Cup Final, FEI  Nations’ Cup Final, and the FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships.

Equine Canada is responsible for developing, selecting and training all international Canadian Equestrian Teams in the eight equestrian disciplines recognized by the Federation Equestre International (FEI). These eight include the three Olympic disciplines of dressage, show jumping and eventing and the Paralympic discipline of para-equestrian, as well as driving, endurance, reining and vaulting.

Fundraising, marketing, public relations and other programs that benefit the CET are all managed by EC. And, to ensure that Canada continually has world-class equestrian athletes coming up the ranks, EC offers developmental support to the Young Riders program.
