NCHTA Awards Banquet



  Last Saturday night brought on the National Capital Horse Trials Association awards banquet.  The NCHTA is a great organization that costs NOTHING to belong too, and they have a great little community formed by the more eastern region of Ontario's eventers.  They take certain events, most in the Ottawa and surrounding area, some in Quebec, and tally up scores for year end prizes and bragging rights.




 Two years ago Fandango had his big success by being Reserve Champion in the Pre-Entry division.  This year was Archies' turn.  Archie and I were Champion in the Entry Senior division for the year!  We took home a trophy and plaque to show off our success.


  The former Chief Executive officer Akaash Maharaj who just stepped down from the job, gave a speech that was very interesting and insightful on how changes were made from the Canadian Eventing program several years back, and the rewards and success the team is reaping now.  He was candid and professional, and he explained the difference in eventing from other equestrian sports, in that you can't really "buy" your way to the top in eventing.  At the end of the day, you still have to be able to ride when you go cross country.  He is an incredible public speaker and I am sad that he will no longer be the head of Canadas' Equine organization. 


  I had a great night at the banquet, and was reminded that all that hard work and perseverance paid off.  I also got jump started into excitement over this years show season. Only 3 and a half months away!

  29. This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. You’ve got a design here that’s not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what you’re saying. Great job, indeed.
