Equine Canada has come up with an innovative and inexpensive way for all Canadians to be part of the country’s efforts to bring home the bacon from the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France.

All of the funds raised during the “$20.14 for 2014” campaign will be applied toward offsetting the cost of sending Canada’s world-class equine and human athletes to one of the biggest and most illustrious competitions in equestrian sport.

Donations of $20.14 can be made online through the Equine Canada website, and visitors to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair can make a donation in person by visiting the EC booth in Hall A of the Direct Energy Centre in Exhibition Place.

Jean Christophe Gandubert, Chief Executive Officer Equine Canada, said the Canadian Equestrian Team has legitimate aspirations to perform well on the world stage “and we want to support them in every way we can”.

“This ‘$20.14 for 2014’ drive is an important part of our commitment and it gives the entire Canadian equestrian community an opportunity to express their support. This fundraising drive will help the athletes from all the disciplines achieve their goals and make us proud.”

WEG features eight FEI disciplines: dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, jumping, para-equestrian, reining, and vaulting. Historically, Canada has achieved great success at these championships. At the last games in 2010 in Kentucky, the CET earned two individual bronze medals in jumping and reining, and one team silver medal in eventing.
