JUMP CANADA YOUNG HORSE SERIES

The purpose of the Jump Canada Young Horse Series is to encourage the development of young show-jumping talent and to give Canadian breeders additional incentives to breed superior show-jumping prospects. Competing on a level playing field, the horses are divided according to age and jump at a level suited to their development. This careful development allows the horses to gain valuable experience and advance to the higher levels of show jumping competition with confidence. The Jump Canada Young Horse Series also gives prospective buyers for the hunter and jumper markets an opportunity to view a large group of prospects in a competition setting.

FOOTBALL CLUB
Huronia Stallions Football Club

Dutch Masters is a proud sponsor and supporter of the Huronia Stallions Football Club.  The Stallions have an enrolment of about 400 kids and belong to the Ontario Varsity Football League, which has teams across the province.

Dutch Masters' commitment to the Stallions is particularly special because attending football games was a favourite pastime of Kerry van Bolderen, Gary's late wife and Greg's mother. With her passing, we wanted to continue our significant involvement with this great organization run by wonderful people.
