$150,000 in Bursaries to Under 25 Show Jumping Athletes

The AEF is pleased to announce two exciting new programs that are rolling out in 2018, and eligible to all riders under the age of 25. The J.C. Anderson Legacy Medal and the RMSJ Under 25 North American 1.30m Championship will help to benefit many young athletes across the country by providing bursaries to assist them in advancing their equestrian careers. 

Special thanks to the J.C. Anderson Family Foundation for supporting these initiatives that will assist young athletes with long-term Equestrian development and help to identify those who have the potential to become Canada's next High Performance Equine Athletes. 

Stay tuned for more details on these programs coming in February.

Travel Policies
Mike King, Capri Insurance 

As the weather becomes colder, many members start to plan their winter escape to warmer destinations. For our clients, that trip may also include travelling with their horses. 

This product was initially created due to inquiries and concerns over the limitations often found in standard everyday travel insurance. In response, we designed a customized out-of-province plan for the membership. 
The basic features of this product are similar to other plans: 
  • Emergency unexpected medical expense reimbursement/coverage; 
  • Availability of coverage anywhere in the world;
  • 24-hour claims assistance.
