WHOA! Quarterly News – Summer 2016


The New OEF Quarterly E-WHOA!

Welcome to the new WHOA!

After many years we have said goodbye to the old print WHOA! and welcome to the electronic age.  

Information moves quickly these days and a quarterly printed newsletter has a hard time keeping up.  Our new electronic version is not only more timely, but it’s also shareable with everyone.  We have also added a subscription registry on the home page of our website so members and non-members alike can see what we’re up to.

We will use this E-News version of WHOA! to share important OEF news and to share what other members are doing across the sport.

We’ll also be posting fun and timely information on new initiatives and sponsor contests on our social media, so be sure to sign up to stay informed! 

Thank-You, Dominique Bosshart

The Board of Directors of the Ontario Equestrian Federation (OEF) announces the leave of Executive Director, Dominique Bosshart. The Board and Staff would like to take this opportunity to express its deepest gratitude to Ms. Bosshart for her 4-month term guiding the organization through the transition of our new #LEADCHANGE Strategic Plan. Ms. Bosshart’s experience as a Sport Administrator, a two-time Olympian, and Bronze medalist provided valuable contributions to aligning the OEF to GameON – The Ontario Government’s Sport Plan. We wish Ms. Bosshart great success with her future endeavours.

2016 OEF Youth Bursary

It’s Youth Bursary application time again.  We are looking for 5 deserving young riders or drivers who would benefit from the OEF’s financial support to continue to participate in their chosen equestrian sport.

If you will be between 14 and 17 years of age (as of January 1, 2017), you are passionate about equestrian sport and you demonstrate that passion through participation and volunteer activities, we want to invite you to apply for one of our 5 Youth Bursaries.
