Grassroots Growth at Royal West

CALGARY, AB – The Final day of the Developing Riders Tour concluded yesterday at the Royal West Tournament. Riders competed in a fun filled day of competition at Royal West’s brand new indoor venue located in Stampede Park in the Agrium building.

The developing rider tour is heavily supported by RMSJ President, John Anderson, and his management team, who believes that nurturing future generations of equestrian talent is imperative to the health of the sport. “We’ve been long supporters of the Developing Riders Series at Rocky Mountain Show Jumping. We really believe in building the grassroots of the sport and by introducing this series to our sport we are attempting to solidify our contribution to the next generation of riders. Supporting upcoming riders and future generations will help tremendously to strengthen the industry and develop future champions.”

Medals were awarded to an excited group of riders in each of the seven divisions in the series. Podium presentations gave riders their moment in the spotlight as Gold, Silver and Bronze medals were awarded. Congratulations to our riders on a great conclusion to this fabulous series.

Congratulations to all of the tour participants and yesterday’s Medal Winners!
