NVIHA Western Performance show April 16-17 at Exhibition Grounds

Equestrians will face 'frontier trail obstacles' at the NVIHA show this weekend at the Exhibition Grounds.

The Western Performance Division of North Vancouver Island Horse Association is starting off the season with a family, fun-filled weekend April 16-17 at the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds.

On Saturday a well-known rider/clinician/trainer from Victoria will be instructing on how to ride and train the horse to go through, step up or over, duck under, splash through or haul a covered wagon through a variety of “frontier trail obstacles” in the first of many-to-follow Extreme Trail Classes. Sunday will be the show and the riders will be judged on their abilities.

“We are extremely fortunate to have a talented local artist/equestrian course designer who has spent copious hours constructing and developing a fun yet challenging course,” an NVIHA spokesperson said. “Riders come from Port Alberni and Powell River and all locations in between, so we are looking forward to a good turnout.”
