Rockylane, up the ranks to the CDI grand prix level. A breast cancer survivor, she even con-

tinued to compete throughout her treatment, winning the grand prix at Devon shortly after her second chemother- apy treatment. Boylen’s career has been equally impactful outside

her role of athlete. She is an EC certified High Perform- ance 1 Dressage Coach, author, founder of the Canadian Amateur Dressage Owners Association (CADORA) and more. In recognition of her numerous contributions to Canadian dressage, Boylen was recently awarded the 2019 EC Lifetime Achievement Award. Peters concluded, “Christilot has approached each

role in her dressage career with passion, commitment and unwavering determination. While we will miss her pres- ence in team competition, we wish her the best with future endeavours and look forward to the next group of talented athletes she develops for Canada’s future.”

Inaugural equestrian professional & enthusiast exhibition turns focus to 2021 Kentucky Horse Park debut

Norwalk, CT (August 4, 2020) — Due to increased concern over public safety resulting from the COVID-19 pan- demic, EQUITANA USA’s live three- day celebration of the horse is canceled for 2020. The world’s largest equestrian trade fair and expo was originally scheduled for Sept. 25-27, at the Ken- tucky Horse Park. The event and its ex- hibitors, fans and performers will look forward to the 2021 event, slated for Oct. 1-3, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky. “EQUITANA USA is a shared

place and time for all disciplines, breeds, ages and levels of the equine in- dustry,” said Meghan Margewicz, the event’s director. “But the safety of everyone associated with the event is al- ways our first priority. After many dis- cussions with the Kentucky Horse Park, exhibitors, presenters and attendees, we made a difficult, but necessary decision to cancel this year’s celebration and work to create an amazing reunion for everyone in 2021.” All EQUITANA USA 2020 ticket
