The Alberta Equestrian Federation (AEF) is hosting the 2013 Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships (CIEC) in the Calgary area from Sept. 13-15, 2013.  Schooling and warm-up for the competition will be Sept. 11-12.  The AEF is seeking horses for lease to qualified riders from other provinces.

Dressage and jumping for both junior and senior riders will be held at Rocky Mountain Show Jumping (www.rmshowjumping.com); and reining for juniors and seniors will be at the Okotoks Agricultural Society (www.okotoksag.com).

The AEF is seeking a number of horses in all three disciplines, for lease to qualified teams of riders from other provinces/territories.  Each provincial/territorial team will be coached by a certified coach and /or professional trainer.  Horses for lease must meet certain discipline-specific criteria and will be cared for to the highest standards. 

The CIEC is a sanctioned Equine Canada competition and a collaborative event between the national and provincial sport organizations.  It aims to develop the next generation of equestrian national and international champions. 

The championships are also an opportunity to showcase Alberta’s excellence in horse training, management and breeding to a national and provincial audience.  Trainers can highlight their expertise and promote their horses through the lease program.
