A Salute to our Horse Show Volunteers
During the 2018 Equestrian Canada (EC) Awards Reception, where the achievements of Equestrians, Organizations and Horses are honoured, Centaur’s team of horse show volunteers, “The Red Team”, was presented with the Volunteer Award of the Year.
This award was created in 1998 to recognize the tireless volunteers who have selflessly contributed to the advancement of equine and equestrian interests in Canada. This award is an acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication of individuals who so generously give their time in order to support the goals and vision of EC. The Centaur Red Team has certainly done this. Over the years, since CRS’ start in 1973, volunteers have donated over 95,000 hours to 440 competitions helping to make competition a reality for thousands of dressage athletes.
