|Attention All Coaches - Ticket to Ride Program
Horse Council BC is asking you to fill out a questionnaire about their new program. You can download it here.
In a nutshell, the program provides a website which allows people seeking instruction to locate a certified coach in their area, and make an initial appointment to take advantage of 3 possible experiences:
- a 30 minute riding lesson;
- a 30 minute ground lesson;
- a 30 minute educational farm tour.
To make it the best possible experience for all, we have:
Arranged to provide participants with a 24 hour HCBC profile for the day of their appointment, including the full insurance package offered with membership
- Offered coaches payment for their time at $40 per 30 minute lesson or tour
- Arranged with sponsor Greenhawk Equestrian Sport to send a new helmet to TTR coaches for the exclusive use of TTR participants
In order for us to register coaches for the program, we require them to:

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. 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!
Please help spread the word about this new and exciting opportunity to support dressage on Vancouver Island by forwarding this information to a friend !

The Purpose of the Club
The purpose of the club is to develop and promote interest in horses and excellence in horsemanship by offering equestrian sports and equestrian education for all ages, no matter the breed or type of horse a member might own. The club, formed in 1929, has worked with the Cowichan Exhibition Society for many years and their grounds north of Duncan are the site of most club shows.
