HI Erin
Sorry I haven't written sooner but I missed your message. There is a protocol procedure listed on the EC website I believe and I know there is a description in the general regs and hunter jumper rule books. Basically you need to have some experience working at local shows, you make an application through EC to become a Junior Course Designer (small r). This must be in sometime in Sept or Oct. An exam is then sent to you which must be returned by the end of October. You must also take an EC certification Course Design Clinic. This then enables you to work at Bronze and Silver shows. ie Trillium level shows. It is also important to work with a Recognized Senior Course Designer whenever possible. Also a good start is to volunteer to be on the Ring Crew at local shows. Good luck. Hope to see you out there. Evie

Hi Evie,

I was wondering how you get into course design. Ive been a rider in the Hunter/Jumpers for a number of years but might like to venture outside of riding and try my hand at course design. Im just not sure where abouts to start? Any info would be much appriciated.

Hi Glenn
Wow that's pretty scary stuff. It must be a shock to have lost a vet to the virus. Hope you all be very careful. 2 years ago North America has a virus outbreak and it almost shut our big winter circuits down. It surely shook our horseworld and the threat of no big winter circuit would have financially affected everyone. It was a big reality check. Have your shows been shut down? My next show is in a couple of weeks. The Tournament of Champions which is our last big outdoor show. It's an FEI World Cup Qualifier with over $200,000 in prize money. The team will be there so it should be pretty exciting. I'm decorating and the course designer this time is Conrad Homfeld. First time working with him and I'm looking forward to the week. I've been sourcing lots of plants and buying up silks. Should be an exciting week. I'll post some pics after the show. That's all for now. Have a good one. Cheers Evie

Season Half Over???

Well we have made it to the half way point of the season. Seems like we just got started - May does not seem so far away when we arrived in Calgary for two weeks of the May Classic tournaments at Spruce Meadows - but alas it is - half over.

I can not remember where we left you last - I believe it was the beginning of June in Blainville and from there I went on to Spruce Meadows for the Summer Series - five weeks of tournaments that highlights some of the best horse and rider combinations… Continue

Have Tape Measure Will Travel - But "Ooh the Mud"

Hi again. Since our last blog entry we have been very busy logging air miles and accumulating dirty clothes. After Edmonton we headed to Blainville, Quebec for a great week of jumping. It is great to work in Quebec because they have a unique tradition of holding what I like to call traditional hunter classics. The two round variety - with a course that encompasses all the characteristics of a traditional hunter classic. What is exciting is for Sunday they combine the two hunter rings to make… Continue

Alberta On My Mind .... Mind the Wind

Last week Evie and I spent our time “toiling” in beautiful Edmonton, Alberta, home of the Northlands Horse Show. Edmonton Northlands Horse Show has become one of the premier events in Western Canada under the stewardship of the Edmonton Hunter – Jumper Association and the direction of Show Manager Caroline Jones. The event is unique in the fact that it is held on the infield of Northlands Race Track, who along with Hastings Park in Vancouver is the location for all of western Canada’s Grade… Continue

Beautiful weather for a great week of showing in Palgrave Ontario

What a great week it was at Palgrave. Beautiful weather, great jumping and lots of wonderful horses. Chris course designed 2 hunter rings all week. The show ran so well that the over 150 trips in each ring ended by 4 pm every day. Today he set a very interesting and challenging Equine Canada Medal for the 3'6" junior riders. Over 25 took part and many mastered the subtle tests he built into the track. We are… Continue

It seems wind is the common thread across the country!

Just finished 2 shows....the first at beautiful Halton Horse Place which is located about an hour and half west of Toronto. Just as Chris battled with wind and rain in Calgary we fought with the same conditions.... high winds, jumps blowing over etc etc. Although jumps blew over 3 times on Saturday the worst of the storms that hit the Toronto area somehow missed the show site. Just down the road heavy rains, hail, thunder and lightning were causing havoc with traffic. Exhibitors kept calling… Continue
