Here are the placings at the first Central Ontario Region of Pony Club dressage qualifier for the Central Canadian Zone Dressage Championships, held on Sunday, April 27, jointly hosted by the Kawartha Pony Club and the Kawartha Lakes Dressage Association (KLDA). Several classes had both Pony Club members and non-members competing. We understand that results for KLDA members will be posted to its website, www.geocities.com/kawartha_lakes_dressage/. Selection for the Central Ontario Dressage team, which will compete against teams from the Western Ontario and St. Lawrence-Ottawa Valley Regions, will be based on scores achieved at this meet and other qualifiers hosted by the Toronto & North York Pony Club on June 1, and by the Victoria Pony Club on July 13. This year, the Central Canadian Zone Championships are being hosted by the Central Ontario Region at the Ontario's Pony Clubs Tournament of Champions August 15-17.
Note also that, for 2003, Dressage Canada has moved to the U.S. system of tests, which are different from those used in previous years. International level tests remain the same, but are not usually offered at Pony Club dressage competitions. These results are shown from most to least difficult. In dressage, each competitor normally rides in two classes which are consecutive in difficulty.
Here are highlight results. Details follow.
At the highest level for this show, Third Level Test 2, the winner was Jenny Rae of the Victoria Pony Club riding Avalon. This pair also won the Third Level Test 1 class.
