“The Canadian athletes had a strong season in 2017 at the international 2*, 3* and 4* levels,” said Dr. Rob Stevenson, Chair of the EC Eventing High Performance Advisory Group. “2017 also marked the first year of our strategic partnership with the eventing data analytics company, EquiRatings. This proved to be a valuable investment both for athletes and the High Performance Advisory Group.”

Dr. Stevenson continued, “We are fortunate to once again have David O’Connor providing technical guidance to our athletes. Given the success he has had with the Canadian team in the past, we feel this bodes well for 2018. At this time, we believe we have the horses and athletes, the leadership, and the strategy that should yield strong results in 2018 and beyond.”
