Dressage Canada Levy Program

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAMPrivate Dancer (Photo: www.TheHorsesEye.com)
The Dressage Canada $7 levy fee is applicable to each horse entered in an Equine Canada sanctioned Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Dressage competition. The $7.00 levy is collected from each competitor at the time of entry and the total amount is forwarded to Equine Canada. The revenues generated from this levy program are used to support, in part the following programs:
Give it a Go Days Pilot Program
Give it a Go Days are defined as non-competitive education / development clinics for riders and certified coaches of all ages and skill levels. Participants register for the clinic directly with their club and ride a Dressage Canada test of their choice (Training Level – Fourth Level) in front of an EC or PTSO certified dressage judge (any level of certified dressage judge is acceptable). The judge will provide feedback to the rider on how to improve their performance in the ring. The rider will have an opportunity to work with their personal coach to improve their performance based on the feedback received from the judge. The rider will then have the opportunity to ride the same test again in front of the judge to measure improvement. No prizes, placings or scores will be ranked during Give it a Go Days. Clubs may track rider improvement if they run more than one Give it a Go Day.

Dressage Canada Bursary Program
In recognition of the difficulty riders face as they strive to continue their dressage education the Dressage Canada
Development Committee has developed a Bursary program to encourage riders to accomplish their goals in the sport of Dressage. The purpose of this Bursary is to provide a monetary grant to assist those who demonstrate the need for financial assistance in pursuing their Dressage goals.

Dressage Canada Youth Bursary Program
In recognition of the difficulty youth riders face as they strive to continue their dressage education, the Dressage Canada Development Committee has developed a Youth Bursary program to encourage these riders to accomplish their goals in the sport of Dressage. The purpose of this bursary is for competitors up to the age of 21 in the dressage discipline to provide a monetary grant to assist those who demonstrate the need for financial assistance in pursuing their
dressage goals.
