The OEF and the Ontario Therapeutic Riding Association (OnTRA) have teamed up to offer the Ribbons for Rides program. The program is available to all therapeutic riders in Ontario and there is no cost to participate. Every time a rider completes any Fédération Équestre Internationale (FEI) Para Dressage test he or she will receive a ribbon. For every test completed the participating rider will receive the next placing, for the opportunity to achieve a champion rosette:
Test #1 – Eighth place ribbon (brown)
Test #2 – Seventh place ribbon (purple)
Test #3 – Sixth place ribbon (pink)
Test #4 – Fifth place ribbon (green)
Test #5 – Fourth place ribbon (yellow)
Test #6 – Third place ribbon (white)
Test #7 – Second place ribbon (blue)
Test #8 – First place ribbon (red)
Test #9 – Reserve Champion rosette
Test #10 – Champion rosette
In appreciation of the time and effort that riders put into completing ten tests, the OEF is pleased to have the champion rosettes signed by the rider of the recipient’s choosing! The program is open to all therapeutic riders and all parents, instructors, facilities or riders themselves are encouraged to contact the OEF Office. There is absolutely no cost to participate.
All competitors are encouraged to donate their ribbons. To donate ribbons please contact Pam Coburn at email@example.com or place ribbons in the donation boxes that will be set up at the Caledon Equestrian Park.
The OEF would like thank everyone who has donated ribbons to the Ribbons for Rides program. A special thanks to Dominion Regalia for providing much needed 7th and 8th place ribbons!
