Ontario Athlete Assistance Program


The Ontario Equestrian Federa- tion, in partnership with the Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport is proud to announce the second year of a funding program for Ontario Equestrian Athlete’s.


Quest for Gold - Ontario Ath- lete Assistance Program 2010-2011 (OAAP) is funded by the Govern- ment of Ontario, through the Min- istry of Health Promotion and Sport (MHP). The overarching goal of the Quest for Gold - OAAP is directly related to the Enhanced Excellence goals of both Canadian Sport 4 Life and the Canadian Sport Policy - to improve the performance and num- ber of Ontario athletes performing at


the national and international level; thereby contributing to the improved performance of Canada at interna- tional competitions.


The program will provide direct financial assistance to Ontario junior- aged athletes through an “Ontario Card” designation. “Junior-aged ath- lete” is defined as those athletes who fall within the eligible age range for the Canada Games - 11 to 22 years of age. (Consideration will be given to older junior-aged athletes if a PSO/MSO’s NSO-approved Long Term Athlete Development model(LTAD) identifies older ath- letes in the “Train to Train” and “Train to Compete” categories). The


intent of the OAAP is to provide funding to individual athletes based on their demonstrated commitment to high performance sport, allowing them to pursue athletic excellence at the highest levels of national and international competition.

Canadian Dressage Community Loses Dressage Icon


By Cheryl Tataryn


Ottawa, Ontario — It is with deep regret that Equine Canada (EC) acknowledges the passing of long-time member, coach, offi- cial, clinician and mentor, Jacqueline (Jacqui) Oldham, 72, of Langley, BC, after a courageous battle with cancer.


Jacqui was born in Bellevue, AB in 1938 and started riding as a young girl in Edmonton. By the age of 14, Jacqui directed her equestrian interest to dressage leading into a lifelong dedication to the sport.
