Canadian Eventing Announces Competition Funding for Burghley and Blenheim

Canadian Eventing have announced a support program for riders to compete in three and four star events in Great Britain this fall.

The Canadian Eventing Committee and its High Performance Committee (HPC) are pleased to announce the availability of support grants for those riders interested in competing at Burghley CCI4*, which is held at Burghley Park, Stamford, Lincolnshire, GBR, Sept 3-6, or Blenheim CCI3*, held in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, GBR, Sept 9-13, in the fall of 2009.
The grants are offered to help offset some of the expenses of the trip, but will not cover all of the costs that will be incurred. David O'Connor, International Technical Advisor, and Dr. Christiana Ober, Team Veterinarian, will provide support for those attending at each competition.

Interested applicants of theses grants must submit their declarations to compete to the Manager Eventing at Equine Canada. A declaration to compete at either of these competitions will be considered as an application for a Support Grant. These declarations must be received no later than June 15, 2009.

The HPC Selection Committee will review the applications and reward grants using the factors contained in the criteria for the 2008 Olympic Games as their guideline. The support grants are primarily available to those horse/rider combinations who have successfully received a qualifying results at a CCI 4* or CCI 3* three day events during the spring of 2009 or the fall of 2008.

There will be a maximum number of five grants awarded, and their value will be between $6,000 and $8,000.

It is anticipated that decision will be announced following the CCI Bromont Three Day Event, held June 10-14, 2009, and before the end of June.
