Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the BCEA clinics?

The BCEA clinics (all levels) are 2 or 3 days of cross-country instruction with warm up in stadium. The length of time spent in stadium instruction is decided by clinicians, based on competency level of participants.

  • What level of experience do my horse and I need to have?

To participate in the Riding Education Clinics, riders need to be prepared to ride out of an arena in a group over uneven terrain. The REGULAR clinic is open to all BCEA members (regular and non-competitive supporting members) regardless of age or level of competition.

  • What is Introduction to Eventing?

Riders from any discipline who have not competed in more than 2 Starter divisions at Horse Trials, are invited to participate in the INTRODUCTION TO EVENTING clinic. Some exceptions may be considered for those just returning to riding after many years absence.

  • When will a clinic be held?

We are hoping to hold a clinic when Provincial Health regulations will allow

  • Where will the clinics be?

Historically the two areas for the clinics are the Lower Mainland and the Interior. If attendance numbers are limited by restrictions, we may look at smaller, regional clinics.

  • Who will teach the clinic?

In past years one upper level, out of Province clinician is selected for each area with a selection of BC’s many top-level coaches rounding out the Educational opportunities. However, we may need to adjust this based on travel and other restrictions.

  • How much will the clinic cost?

Cost of the clinics is kept as affordable as possible based on expenses including, but not limited to, venue and clinicians. The clinics are not meant to be a source of profit for BCEA.

  • How can I register for the clinic?

Once dates, locations and clinicians have been confirmed applications and clinic details will be posted on this website as well as the BC Eventing social media outlets.

  • Are the lessons private or group?

The lessons are group with a limit of 4 to each 1 ½ hour lesson.

  • Do I need to be a member?

To participate in the BCEA clinic series, all REGULAR and INTRODUCTION TO EVENTING riders must obtain either a Full or Non-Competitive Supporting Membership for BCEA. This can be done online at Horse Council membership (or other province equivalent) is mandatory for all riders at all levels.
