I represent the Ontario Therapeutic Riding Association and we are in need of some borrowed horses for two competitions this summer. We have a regional show in the Hamilton area on June 20, 2009 and our Ontario Para Sport Games on July 25, 2009 in the Woodstock area where we have a rather urgent need for higher level horses. A few of our Advanced and Intermediate level riders find themselves without horses this summer for a variety of reasons and as such, we are looking for well schooled dressage horses that can be borrowed for these competitions. These horses should be well trained in dressage and be able to work for our Para riders at the walk, trot and canter. No lateral movements are required, but a steady gate is a must. The Ontario Para Sport Summer Games are where our Advanced riders qualify for National shows and gather scores to compete internationally, so good horses are a real need.
It would be preferable if we could borrow the same horses for both shows, but if that isn't possible, that is understood. If you think you have an appropriate horse for our riders to borrow for these shows, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Many thanks for your consideration.
