The National Capital Horse Trials Association (NCHTA) is dedicated to the promotion of horse trials and Eventing in Eastern Ontario. 

Anyone who rides, organizes, volunteers or supports the sport of Eventing in Eastern Ontario is invited to take part – there are no fees to join, no membership cards … all you need is a love of the sport.


The Association offers support to competition organizers, riders, and coaches.  Competitors in local shows can earn points towards year-end awards and trophies.  To become more involved in NCHTA activities, please contact ruth@oakhurstfarm.com


Please note that in order to be eligible for year end awards in 2017, riders are required to complete and return a National Capital Horse Trials Membership Application.  If you filled one out last year, you are automatically enrolled again.  There is no charge, and you can find registration forms and info:  Membership.
