Vue d’ensemble

Back in 2019, Wesley Clover Parks presents the Ottawa Horse Trials! 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!

Thanks to Greenhawk Equestrian Sport and Apple Saddlery for donating some special prizes for our Ottawa Horse Trials competitors!
