The Courtenay CADORA dressage club is proud of its local talent of riders. They announced the following year-end award winners for 2013:

The Jim Kerr Sportsmanship Award: Angie Szokol of Courtenay was the recipient of the  Sportsmanship Award for her huge commitment to the sport and her great display of sportsmanship during local competitions.

Dove Creek Farm High Point Award: Lee Delaney was the recipient of the High Point Award. Lee maintained the highest scores while competing in the Courtenay horse shows in 2013 riding Reno.

CADORA stands for the Canadian Dressage Owners and Riders Association. Competitive dressage is an immensely popular equestrian pursuit. It is a worldwide sport that ranges from novice standards to the Olympics, with many different breeds and types of horses and ponies.

The object of dressage is the harmonious development of the physique and ability of the horse. As a result, it makes the horse calm, supple, loose and flexible but also confident, attentive and keen, thus achieving perfect understanding with his rider.
