As a part of a twice-yearly review of its National Team Program, Equestrian Canada has made a few modifications and additions to the roster of eventers. The National Team Program is used to identify and cultivate talent that shows potential to go on and represent the maple leaf on the international stage in all major disciplines (show jumping, eventing, dressage, para-dressage), with high performance athlete services distributed to riders according to their tier of designation.

The eventing riders are currently divided into the National Squad, to which we have two promotions in this cycle (Karl Slezak and Hot Bobo and Colleen Loach with FE Golden Eye), and the Development Squad, to which a total of five new combinations have been added. The current Canadian NTP squads are:

  • Dana Cooke and FE Mississippi Syndicate’s Mississippi
  • Colleen Loach and Peter Barry’s Vermont + Peter Barry, Amanda Bernhard & Colleen Loach’s FE Golden Eye
  • Jessica Phoenix with her own and James Phillips’ Wabbit
  • Karl Slezak and his own Hot Bobo
  • Lindsay Traisnel and Patricia Pearce’s Bacyrouge
  • Mike Winter and Jonathan Nelson, Emma & Michael Winter’s El Mundo

The Development Squad is:

  • Hawley Awad and her own + Jollybo Syndicate LLC’s Jollybo
  • Melissa Boutin and her own Obeah Dancer GS
  • Hanna Bundy¬†and Lovely Assistant
  • Kyle Carter and The Barnstaple Group’s G Star Van de Klinkenberg
  • Dana Cooke and Kingfisher Park’s Quattro
  • Holly Jacks and the Candy King Limited Partnership’s Candy King
  • Jamie Kellock and her own Summer Bay

Canada has some exciting development plans for its eventing athletes this season, sending a squad overseas to contest the FEI Nations Cup leg at Arville in Belgium (August 17-20), as well as the North American leg at Bromont (August 11-12).
