A Message from our Ambassadors

We would like to thank these exceptional young ladies for representing the Agricultural Society as our Ambassadors from 2019-2021. This year marks the end of their reign, and we wish them all the best. 

Here are messages from these lovely young ladies.

Senior Ambassador - Olivia Schlosser

Junior Ambassdaor - Jacinta Paterson

L'il Ambassador - Claire Olivero

Due to Covid, we were unable to hold an Ambassador competition for our 2021 Fair. Stay tuned for updates regarding the Ambassador program.

2021 Online Dressage Show - Results

We are very pleased to present the results of our virtual dressage show.

For those of you new to the sport, dressage is all about lightness, freedom of movement, and partnership. In French, dressage means “training”. It is the art of riding and training a horse so that it develops into a calm, obedient, flexible and balanced partner. Participants are judged on their paces, impulsion, submission, and the effectiveness of the rider’s position. With time, expertise and patience, horses and riders progress into more specialized maneuvers. 

Many thanks to all who participated and especially to our judge Joyce Cameron for her excellent feedback. 

Congratulations to the $100 High Score Winner:

Katie Fleming riding Ginger with a score of 74.29% in the WSDSC Basic Test A.

Thank you to all our entries! We look forward to offering more prize options and in-person classes next year! Stay up to date on Hanover Fall Fair Horse Show News by liking Hanover Fair page on FB! Happy Riding!!

Filming Instructions and Video Guidelines
New* The video MUST clearly have the entrants state their name and that the test was filmed for the Hanover Fall Fair Virtual Dressage Show. If this is not included, you will be asked to resubmit if time permits; if not, you will be disqualified.


*can be rider or handler for lead-line

*must not be edited audio


Ex: say “( Your Name) riding (Horse’s Name) for the Hanover Fall Fair Virtual Dressage Show” at the end of your ride before exiting the ring


A good quality video will allow the judge to score and comment on your test accurately and appropriately.


•  Video must be continuous with no stops, edits or cuts
•  “Helmet to hoof” must be included in the frame AT ALL TIMES along with the relevant letters for the movement
•  A formal dressage ring is not required however a properly measured area (20m x 40m) will be marked with either actual dressage letters or pylons to indicate the four corners and eight letters
•  Provide adequate space around the perimeter of your dressage area for your horse to travel
•  The camera position will be stationary, located outside the ring, @C (considerations: slight elevation and distance back from ring)
•  Use of a tripod is encouraged
•  Zooming and panning are permitted provided “helmet to hoof” remains in the frame at all times
•  Begin filming at least 10 seconds prior to start of test
•  Continue filming at least 10 seconds after your final halt/salute as you exit the ring
•  The rider (or handler) must state the rider’s name and the show name (Hanover Fall Fair Virtual Dressage Show) on film after the completion of their test
•  Limit distractions including children, dogs, and excessive noise (exception: tests being called)
•  Natural outdoor light is preferred


Failure to meet these requirements could result in insufficient quality to judge the video and therefore lead to disqualification


Note*: please be mindful of your settings if using PIXEO, PIVO or other auto-filming devices!
The relevant dressage letters to the movement need to be visible (ie: when halted at X, B and E should be in frame)


Attire and Tack
Properly fitted helmet and boots with a heel
Show turn out is encouraged
Horses legs to be unobstructed - no boots or wraps
Equestrian Canada rules to apply to tack (bits) and artificial aids
The Lead-line Handler must be over 18 and suitably turned out, wearing proper, closed toe footwear with a heel


• A single lead line will be connected to the noseband of the bridle or a closely fitted halter positioned under the bridle.
THE LEAD LINE WILL NOT BE CONNECTED TO THE BIT.

Ontario Pork Producers

Ontario Pork represents the 1,179 farmers who market 5.5 million hogs in the province. The organization is engaged in many areas, including research, government representation, environmental issues, consumer education and food quality assurance. Ontario Pork is the first livestock commodity group in the province to set social responsibility benchmarks, demonstrating pork producers’ commitment to sustainable farming. Ontario’s pork industry “farm to fork” generates $2.8 billion in economic output and 14,274 in full-time equivalent jobs. 

The Ontario Pork Producers’ Marketing Board (OPPMB) was formed in 1946 at the request of producers. The provincial government enacted the Ontario Hog Marketing Scheme - 1946 under the Farm Products Control Act.

Grey-Bruce Pork Producers’ Association

In 2019, there were 94 pork producers in the Grey-Bruce association, marketing more than 200,000 animals. The region is the fifth-largest in Ontario based on the number of producers, and seventh in terms of production.
