North Vancouver Island Association Hunter Jumper

2021 Update

Thanks to Covid, our 2020 show season was a bit of a bust.  While we can’t predict what will happen in the future, we have chosen to be optimistic and have begun to plan this years events.

Planning and running horse shows and clinics requires many volunteers and unfortunately our show committee has had several long time volunteers retire. As a result of this, and the additional work required to meet Covid safety requirements, we will need to fill these vacant positions if we are to have any events this summer. If you would like to join the committee, or are available to help on an ad hoc basis, please contact us.

Our proposed line up for the 2021 season is as follows:

April 17 & 18 - Working Equitation Show
     This type of show is becoming very popular and consists of two phases: a dressage component and a speed/obstacle component. Each rider will be given a specific ride time for each phase so that there are very few people gathered at any one time (thereby meeting covid requirements).

May 8 & 9 - Hunter/Jumper clinic
     This clinic will have 2 clinicians running simultaneously over both days.  One clinician will focus on lower heights and easier courses to help develop beginner riders and green horses while the other will have more technical courses set at higher heights.  Both groups will be on sand.

June 25, 26 & 27 - TBD - If you have any ideas or suggestions for these dates, please let us know

A fun, inviting horse show series in the Comox Valley. Perfect for young horses, young riders and those looking for some fun!


About the Club

Our History

The North Vancouver Island Horse Association was formed in 1965 to help bring to the attention of the public the values of horsemanship and to further the knowledge of horsemanship and to organize, promote and manage horse shows, trail rides, lectures, and demonstrations.

The Hunter Jumper division of NVIHA started their first circuit in 1983 with the help of Ann & Ray Green, Catherine Preece and Lori Yarrow. This series has been well-loved and attended over the years, having as many as 170 participants.

The North Vancouver Island Horse Association continues to strive to present quality shows, affordable to local riders, while also providing a showcase of high-level competition.

We wouldn’t be here without the support of our local riders and sponsors. Thank you!
