Para- Equestrian Canada Funds Competition Programs
Para-Equestrian Canada is pleased to announce that we have once again partnered with Sport Canada to encourage the participation of riders with a disability in competition.
As part of this project, therapeutic riding centres offering new competitive opportunities or increase their existing competition program to riders with a disability are eligible to receive a grant of up to $500.

The grant program, introduced in 2008, has awarded more than 57 grants over the past five years to Canada’s therapeutic riding centres. Some examples of how the grants have assisted with the introduction of riders to Para-Equestrian sport include: support for visually and hearing-impaired riders, funding for in-house shows, subsidies for riders to receive competitive experience, dressage letters and funding for new “introduction to competition” riding programs.
