OTTAWA, Ontario, May 25, 2019–A Dressage Youth Development Fund has been launched by Equine Canada to support riders representing Canada at the North American Youth Championships.

The initiative was spearheaded by Dr. Geoff Vernon, Canada’s dressage team veterinarian for the 2019 Lima Pan American Games who, along with other donors, $10,000 to kick off the fund.

“Our young and developing riders really are the pathway to our future–not only the future of our sport, but Canada’s success internationally,” he said. “That’s why it’s really important that we specifically embrace our developing rider teams, and we’re very fortunate that we will be sending teams to the North American Youth Championships this year.”
