Overview

Back in 2018, Wesley Clover Parks presents the Ottawa Horse Trials, in conjunction with the 2018 OHTA Championships. Similar to a triathalon, eventing (or horse trials) is a sport that features three very different disciplines – dressage, cross country, and show jumping. With infrastructure to support all three of these disciplines, we hope to continue to grow eventing in the Ottawa area. Join us as a competitor, or learn more about this unique and exciting sport as a spectator!

Interested in volunteering? Wesley Clover Parks will be looking for eager volunteers to help us with this event. Volunteer roles include being a runner, whip, scrib, jump crew, or cross country jump judge. Please email volunteer@wesleycloverparks.com if interested, along with your availability (Saturday, September 8th and/or Sunday, September 9th).
