Stevens Creek Horse Trials,

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

  • About the event





















    What is a Horse
    Trial?





    Horse trials, also commonly known as “eventing” is the
    triathlon of the equestrian world and one of the three Olympic equestrian
    disciplines, the other two being dressage and show jumping. Horse and rider
    pairs compete in three events: dressage, cross-country and stadium jumping. To
    win, a team must complete all three phases and have the best overall cumulative
    score. Eventing is a popular sport across Ontario, and can be pursued with an
    average backyard horse and some good coaching.



     



    What is Stevens Creek Farm?





    Stevens
    Creek Farm is an equestrian facility just south of Ottawa near Manotick,
    Ontario owned and operated by Teddie Laframboise and Andy de St. Croix. Teddie is
    a member of the well-known Laframboise ‘eventing’ family who has fielded
    several National and Olympic Team riders. The farm offers programming for both recreational
    and competitive riders of all ages. Every week during the summer months more
    than 70 families attend the farm for riding lessons



     



    Last Years
    Event





    Last year, we hosted two events that attracted more
    than 200 horse and rider pairs from pre-entry through preliminary level along
    with their families and supporters. More than 160 individuals from our own farm
    and the local community volunteered as judges, stewards and crew. Overall, our
    event received considerable praise from competitors and spectators alike and we
    expect entries to increase in the years to come.



     



    Stevens Creek
    Farm Facilities





    Stevens Creek Farm’s facilities include a large all
    weather outdoor sand ring, an indoor riding arena, a set of stadium jumps, and
    a full cross-country course for the first five levels of eventing. A
    professional course designer and countless volunteers have spent the past
    2years developing a cross-country course including a water complex, 2 large
    riveted banks, ditches, and more than 40 jumps. Last year, we were able to
    build several new cross country and stadium jumps. Our future goals include
    additional jumps, dressage ring upgrades, and a show secretary office cabana.



     



    Why do we need
    support?





    Riding is a sport that operates with no government
    subsidy and yet it is thriving. We are dependent on the generosity of sponsors
    to keep our sport strong. Our event offers the lowest entry fees in the area to
    help developing riders and their family. Since developing our facility last
    year, we have offered our facility to local riders to use for training and we
    have hosted competitions and other events for local not-for-profit
    organizations, such as the Oxford Downs Pony Club. We hope you will be
    interested in joining us to support amateur sport in the area and to be a part
    of one of the fastest growing sports in the country.
