June 8th 2018 – Ontario Equestrian (OE) proudly presents KidsZone, a new interactive program for young equestrians. KidsZone has been created to provide the equestrian community with an exciting, safe, interactive play place for children, friends, and families. Hosted at Caledon Equestrian Park (CEP), KidsZone is an area for kids to experience, learn and play. There will be multiple activities for children to engage in including a horseless show jumping course and the newly launched Rookie Rider program. Rookie Rider will allow children to learn the fundamentals of riding by testing their physical literacy skills on a barrel prior to ever mounting a horse.
Designed to provide a space for the public to learn about Equestrian Sport, the KidsZone is free to everyone. CEP has free parking, free admission, and the opportunity to understand what it means to be an equestrian.
KidsZone will be available at CEP on the following dates in 2018:

Ontario Equestrian and Caledon Equestrian Park pride themselves in educating not only young equestrians, but the surrounding community as well. KidsZone will provide children with a place to play and learn, and it will also provide a place for parents to observe a horse show and ask any questions they may have. Ontario Equestrian’s focus in 2018 is to encourage growth and learning. KidsZone will provide the public with a gateway to understanding the equine industry.
