Kara and Bretton Named for Team Canada at $25,000 Hollow Creek U25 Team Event Grand Prix
Up-and-coming Canadian jumping athletes are set to represent Canada in the $25,000 Hollow Creek Under 25 Team Event Grand Prix, taking place Feb. 3, 2017 at the CSI 4* Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) 4 in Wellington, FL.
The Canadian team will include the following athletes:
Name / Hometown / Horse / Owner
Bretton Chad / Calgary, AB / Cornishman / Stone Ridge Farms LLC
Kara Chad / Calgary, AB / Ideal de la Haisse / Torrey Pines Stable
Kathryn Dafoe / Nobleton, ON / Eos van de Donkhoeve / KD LAN Solutions Ltd.
Nicole Walker / Aurora, ON / Chaloubet / Nicole Walker
The Chef d’Équipe for the team will be Jumping Talent ID Program Advisor, Beth Underhill of Schomberg, ON.
The Hollow Creek Under 25 Team Event Grand Prix is part of a series of classes targeting up-and-coming athletes from around the world during the WEF circuit, and provides the next generation of jumping athletes with the opportunity to gain experience competing as a team – a relatively rare opportunity in equestrian sport.
The Under 25 Team Event will consist of two rounds, and follow FEI Nations’ Cup rules. Teams will be made up of a minimum of three (3) and a maximum of four (4) members. Teams of four athletes will have a “drop score” advantage, where the score of the team member who incurs the most faults will not be counted toward the overall team score. Results will be based on the lowest number of team total faults over the two rounds.
