Atlantic Canada Equestrian Championships (ACE)


The 2018 Atlantic Canada Equestrian Championships (ACE) is up to 4 disciplines this fall: Dressage, Horse Trials, Jumping, and Reining. For each discipline, there will be two levels of teams.

NSEF has developed an expression of interest form to determine if we have enough athletes to field teams in each province. Following the deadline, athletes who have submitted a form will be contacted with further details and asked to pay the declaration fee.
Submit the Expression of Interest Form at any time between now and June 25th, 2018!
