The 2013 Canadian Interprovincial Equestrian Championships (CIEC) will showcase excellence in Alberta horses and riders, and the Alberta Equestrian Federation (AEF) is seeking horses for lease to qualified riders from other provinces for this competition.
The AEF is hosting the 2013 CIEC in the Calgary area from September 13 to 15, 2013, with schooling and warm-up for the competition taking place on Sept. 11 and 12.
Dressage and jumping for both junior and senior riders will be held at Rocky Mountain Show Jumping, and reining for juniors and seniors will be at the Okotoks Agricultural Society.
The AEF is seeking a limited 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 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.
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.
