✨OEA XC Schooling Day✨
Saturday, June 11, 2022 at
OEA's Schooling Day Program seeks to promote the sport of Eventing in Ontario through its grass roots by providing safe and subsidized opportunities for targeted schooling in the three disciplines of Eventing with the goal of encouraging riders across disciplines to try out Eventing, attracting new riders to the sport, and providing opportunities for supervised and affordable schooling with coaches and clinicians to help existing riders develop their skills.
The OEA is pleased to offer riders an opportunity to try their hands at the cross-country discipline of Eventing and to school at Bronte Creek Equestrian’s beautiful facilities in Southern Ontario. Participants are invited to attend with or without coaches for supervised schooling. Any rider without a coach approved by the organizer will be assigned, at no cost, to one of a few groups led by JUDITH BISIKER, based on horse and rider’s experience and capabilities.
JUDITH BISIKER is a seasoned eventer who has represented Canada in international horse trials at the highest level and now operates Bronte Creek Equestrian. While just out of her teens, Judith competed at the CCI 4* level. At 21, she represented Canada at the Badminton, Burghley and Windsor Horse Trials. By the early 1980s, she was long listed to become a team member of the Canadian Olympic Three Day Event Team. Also in the 1980s, Judith rode as a member of the Canadian team that took second place at the Student's Nation Cup where she also won first place as the top individual rider. Judith is actively involved in the eventing community in Ontario, notably with the selections of the U25 team members. The following principles are at the core of Judith's approach: provide outstanding care to the horses at Bronte Creek; safety comes first at all times; and, offer a teaching style that embraces a positive, calm and methodical approach helping each rider to realize their goals and their potential.
