The Para-Dressage Video Competition Series, sponsored by Ride Every Stride, returns for the 2023 season. The Para-Dressage Video competition series provides riders of all levels and abilities with the opportunity to experience competition conditions in the comfort of their home stable and on a familiar horse. Participants compete against riders with similar abilities nationwide by submitting videos that are judged by EC certified Dressage Judges.
The Para-Dressage Video competitions encourage riders to develop effective skills to compete in a progressive and structured environment. The competition series is a fantastic way to ensure that para-dressage riders across Canada, no matter how geographically isolated, have the chance to compete. Competition is an integral part of athlete development and provides riders with new goals, as well as a sense of empowerment and accomplishment.
