2020 Online Dressage Show - Results

We are very pleased to present a new class offering for this year’s horse show — virtual dressage, sponsored by RBC.

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. The following clips are an informative video and demonstration of our judge Joyce Cameron and her horse Mardi Gras just as they were beginning the Grand Prix movements.

Many thanks to all who participated and especially to our judge Joyce Cameron for her excellent feedback to all competitors. Watch for our return in 2021 with both live and virtual dressage class options!

Thank you to everyone who entered our Dressage competitions. Please narrow your search to the following Class categories where you can see the results and Top 3 Videos in each class.

Executive Bake-Off Results

Adam (President), Harry (1st Vice President) and Keith (2nd Vice President) are the contestants for this bake off!

They each used their mom's apple pie recipe for this bake off :)

Our judge, was Yvonne and she did a splendid job! Please note when we announce the winners in the video, there was a mistake stating that Harry is 2nd Vice President and he is actually the 1st Vice President, our apologies for the error.

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.
