CCE - An Accessible Horse-Centric Equestrian Sport

Over recent decades, many factors have caused traditional equestrian sports to become unaffordable and inaccessible to many. The resultant exclusivity prioritizes resources over skill and talent, to the detriment of horsemanship, safety and welfare. The horse is often reduced to a procurable and replaceable piece of equipment.

Consequently, equestrians are questioning their chosen sport’s priorities and the long term feasibility of participation. Many now participate in competitions at a very limited scale or not at all. Virtually all would seize the opportunity to participate in an exciting, affordable, accessible and horse-centric equestrian sport.

Increasing Accessibility

  • Individuals participate in a manner appropriate for their own level of experience and ability - from absolute beginner to expert competitor.
  • Numerous formats of CCE allow venues of all sizes and resources can conduct CCE competitions, substantially boosting the supply of competitions, especially locally to competitors.
  • Partnership and training are more important in CCE than the market-value or fashionability of the horse.
  • All breeds can participate but the thoroughbred is especially suited to CCE and a more affordable horse.
  • Most CCE competitions do not require an overnight stay, substantially reducing associated costs and time requirements.
  • Equipment and attire requirements are reduced and based on safety and functionality.

Horse-Centric Sport

  • Competitive success in CCE requires good horsemanship, training and a developed partnership between the horse and rider.
  • Elevating the importance of training, horsemanship and partnership in the competition, prioritizes the training and treatment of the horse.
  • CCE provides an environment to improve the partnership and to gain skills and knowledge, without adverse pressure or negative incentives.
  • Optionality and flexibility allow for superior and safer decisions during competition.
  • Safety and welfare have been proactively integrated into CCE from inception - especially through encouraging safer behavior.
  • The culture of CCE originates from enjoying the relationship between horse and rider rather than the horse being used for enjoyment or advancement of the rider.

Excitement and Enjoyment

CCE is an innately exciting sport, combining speed, endurance and jumping in an open country setting. Choice gives each competitor the ability to ride and compete in an optimal manner for their specific circumstances. The competition will point out strengths and weaknesses, indicating where improvement is needed without counterproductive pressure or causing anxiety. CCE makes it very easy for competitors to enjoy their horses.

Long Term Goals

  • Improving horsemanship across the equine industry.
  • A clear and realistic path to an ethical livelihood with legitimate careers and vocations.
  • Substantial improvement in post-racing opportunities OTTB horses.
  • Broad public appeal and engaged spectators.
  • Media exposure including broadcast and streaming to expand spectator audience.
  • Revenue from commercial sponsorship and exposure used to fund CCE and maintain accessibility.
  • Potentially introduce gaming to further fund and elevate CCE.
  • National and International Championship competitions.
