2016 Returning Champions

Returning Champions from last year!!! Just making sure you told us you were coming and that you have let us know about the banquet! If you didn’t order at the time of your registration and ask for an adjustment to the fees – we won’t know you are coming to the banquet… anyone out there that this applies to?

Steeplechase Schedule revised

The previous release of the Steeplechase Schedule contained an error on which judge was in which ring! This has been corrected.

Melanie Hart is judging Steeplechase 1 in CIBC Wood Gundy Ring 4 and Hayley Warner is judging Steeplechase 2 in Roadsters Agility Club Ring 6.

If you downloaded the previous Steeplechase Schedule, please print the one posted July 28.


We are planning a lovely evening on Saturday! After the events, join us for a wonderfully planned menu, cash bar, and a few little bits of fun. Special party favour for every diner (thanks to Gail Thompson and the Nationals Organization Committee)! We will also be announcing lifetime awards and individual placements for the day. You do not have to join us for dinner (there is a bar area) but are you sure you don’t want to??? Check out this menu by the caterer (and this is the caterer used at the Thunderbird Equestrian events – not a burger here, kids). There are still limited tickets available for the banquet but you must contact dickybird@telus.net right away.

Printable Schedule Information for Competitors

Seemed there were a few of you who just couldn’t see the schedules and running orders in the 2017 Schedule website page.

I have created a separate page with JUST printable material so it is easily reviewed and documents selected for printing.

And I have added a WORD copy of the 2017 Schedule page so you can download it and bring it with you if you are already getting ready to travel. The WORD doc has live links to the printable documents if you open it on your device. There is a PDF version of the same page but the links are not live.

I hope this helps everyone!

This page will contain the downloadable Catalogue when it is finished.

Everything you thought you wanted to know!

All schedules are now posted!

Running orders, group orders, competitors entered, how many dogs in each division, when can you watch who – what else can we tell yah??
