The Canadian Eventing Team “Pathway to Paris” online auction has over $23,000 worth of donated items from around North America and runs from August 10th to August 24th. The Pathway to Paris Auction supports the Canadian High-Performance program. These efforts really focus on the road to the Olympics in Paris, which started with the 2022 World Equestrian Championships in Pratoni. Our focus is now on the 2023 Pan American Games in Santiago, Chile; the Nations Cups in Bromont, Quebec and Arville, Belgium; plus, the necessary training opportunities for our High-Performance Athletes from now until 2024.
The Canadian Eventing High Performance Committee is planning to send a team of 4 horse and rider combinations to secure a top 2 podium finish at the Pan American Games. This podium performance will guarantee a Team placement for the 2024 Olympic Team in Paris, France. Our committee is immediately targeting $165,000 for the October 2023 Pan American Games in Santiago.
Auction items range from gift certificates to clinics and coaching in Canada and USA, giveaways, a private Blenheim course walk, tons of tack and clothing, and more! Some of the high-price items include a one-day clinic with Canadian Team member Jessica Phoenix, several weekend destination getaways, and coaching sessions and packages with riders such as Karl Slezak, Holly Jacks, Dana Cooke, and Kendal Lehari. For those of us with more limited budgets, you can still help Team Canada by bidding on some beautiful ear bonnets, custom stock ties, Ruespari belts, Mad Barn nutrition packages, and even a currently well-discounted Tipperary Eventer Pro Vest.
Come check it out, make a free account (don’t need one to browse!), and help support our Canadian Eventing Team Riders to raise funds for 2023 Pan Ams & 2024 Olympics.
Thank you for your support!
