The Equestrian Canada (EC) Eventing Committee is pleased to recognize the athletes scouted as part of the Eventing NOBoundaries (ENB) talent identification program during the 2016 competition season.

ENB is a long-term EC program designed to identify competitive high performance eventing talent. During 2016, ENB focused on identifying future talent and rider/horse combinations with the potential to represent Canada at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG), Toyko 2020 Olympic Games, and the future generation of talent post-2020.

The athletes identified by designated ENB talent identification spotters during competitions and clinics across North America in 2016 include:

• Melissa Boutin – Ascot Corner, QC
• Shelby Brost – St. Albert, AB
• Krista Brown – Dugald, MB
• Carmen Holmes-Smith – Chase, BC
• Emma Johnston – Uxbridge, ON
• Annick Niemuller – Goodwood, ON

By seeking out and identifying talented up-and-coming eventing athletes, ENB’s goal is to help riders understand that their efforts are being recognized by EC and encourage them to self-identify as potential future members of the Canadian Equestrian Team (CET).

ENB athletes will receive a cross-country saddle pad from CET supplier, ECOGOLD. EC thanks ECOGOLD for their generosity in supporting ENB.

Congratulations to all athletes identified through ENB in 2016.
