55+ BC GAMES 2023 

55+ bc games equestrian competition abbotsford

Four great days of 55+ Games equestrian competition were held August 23 to 26 at the Maple Ridge Equi-Sports Centre. Disciplines included were Dressage, Western Dressage, Working Equitation, Working Hunter, and Driving Trials.

At the closing of registration, equestrianS saw 78 participants set to compete. Due to concerns surrounding air quality and the BC wildfire situation around the province participation numbers dropped with some last-minute scratches, but the equestrian events moved forward holding exceptional competition in all events.

A great time was had by all, and everyone deserves huge congratulations. For some it was their very first horse show, or their horse’s very first horse show, and it was amazing to see everyone’s hard work, love for their horses, and love of equestrian sport.

A huge thank you to our judges, Sport Chair Debbie Rogal, Discipline Chairs, and volunteers. The success of the 2023 55+ Games Equestrian Competition would not have been possible without all of you.

Save the Date

Be sure to save the date for next year’s 55+ Games, to be held in Salmon Arm on September 10 to 14, 2024.
