Attention Eventers!

Please find attached the omnibus page with show information and secretary mailing address. Please fill in and mail the attached entry form, waiver and stabling form, cheques payable to Willville Horse Trials.

This event runs just like a derby but more formal. There is a trot up and riders are required to wear show clothing for the dressage, cross country, and stadium rounds.  All rules and guidelines can be found on the Equestrian Canada website under Eventing, Rules 2017.  There is on-site stabling for horses Friday and Saturday night, a competitors dinner Saturday night and on site camping for you and your family!  The show grounds are located right beside the stabling and camping so everything is in easy walking distance.  I can not say enough good things about the facility and friendly atmosphere, if you are into eventing this is a MUST attend on your show schedule for the season.  If you have any questions please shoot me an email!
