Chilliwack’s Island 22 hosts 30th annual Horse Trials

The Island 22 Equestrian Society has worked tirelessly setting up courses for the three day event.

Island 22 welcomes close to 175 horses and riders this weekend for the 30th annual Horse Trials.

The three-day event includes dressage, cross-country and show-jumping.

Dressage is held on Friday, with horse-and- rider teams navigating a set pattern, judged on balance, suppleness, gaits and rhythym.

Day two sees riders galloping through ditches and banks and leaping over logs and a water jump.

Saturday concludes with a barbecue at 6 p.m.

Sunday’s show-jumping competition challenges riders to complete a set of stadium jumps without knocking down or disturbing the barriers.

Admission is $5 and there is an on-site concession.

Action starts bright and early at 8 a.m. each day, running until approximately 3 p.m.
