Equestrian Canada (EC) has introduced Long-Term Equestrian Development (LTED) 2.0, a resource to benefit all Canadian equestrian participants, from athletes and parents to coaches and officials to competition organizers and owners.

LTED 2.0 takes the proven concepts of the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model, created by Sport for Life, and applies them to equestrian sport. LTED 2.0 is the product of many dedicated volunteers, including the LTED Working Group:

Anne Welch (Chair) – ON
Jill Barker – NS
Wendy Johnston - AB
Mike Lawrence - ON
John McAssey - PEI
Doug Orr - AB
Armand Valkenborg - QC
Danielle Yaghdjian – ON

“It is my hope that this document will serve as a touchstone upon which we can develop and deliver programmes at every stage of athlete development that are athlete-centred, coach-driven, and supported by an integrated sport system,” said Anne Welch, Chair of the LTED Working Group, EC Senior Steward, FEI 1* Jumping Steward and FEI 2* Dressage Steward, who was named the 2016 EC Volunteer of the Year.

Welch continued, “Our programmes being built now will be more robust and inclusive of those on both sides of recreation and sport with clear interactive pathways. What I love most of all about this model – there is a place for each and every one of us at every stage of our life within this wonderful sport.”

LTED 2.0  has posted as its mission statement that "Long-Term Equestrian
Development (LTED) is not only
about building successful highperformance
athletes, but also
about ensuring the highest
quality riding experience for
every person who engages in
equestrian sport, including riders
with disabilities."
