A community dedicated to the discipline of Saddle Seat riding
Saddle Seat Canada is a not for profit organization dedicated to promoting the art  of Saddle Seat Equitation in Canada.


The International Saddle Seat Equitation World Cup is a bi-annual competition which originated in the early 1980s with an informal exchange of saddle seat athletes in the United States and South Africa. Originally a three-gaited saddle seat equitation showcase, it has expanded to include a five-gaited component, as well. Teams from as many as five nations now compete for the coveted World Cup titles, and the goal is further growth and visibility for the saddle seat discipline on national and international levels. 

2020 World Cup will be held in 

Parys, South Africa,

July 19-25, 2020

The 2020 World Cup will be held in  Parys, South Africa,

 The purpose of the Invitational Team is to develop riders aged 13-22 years to represent Canada on future Canadian Saddle Seat World Cup teams.
During years that the Saddle Seat World Cup competition is not held, members of the Invitational Team will be eligible to represent Canada in other international competition.
