Anya's Road to Italy


My name is Anya Leverman and I am sixteen years old. I live in 100 Mile House, BC and my passion is endurance riding.

Endurance racing is long distance horse race where the distances can vary from 40km to 160km, with mandatory vet examinations for the horses .

I started endurance riding when I was six years old and over the last ten years I have worked hard to further my abilities. This year I was fortunate to finally receive elite status ( ie 10 X 100 Federation Equestre International races) and was thrilled to be chosen to represent Canada in the upcoming FEI World Endurance Championships for Juniors and Young Riders in Verona, Italy. On September 23rd, I will be the only Canadian riding 120km on Kataki, a ten-year-old chestnut mare provided for me from Vladimir Pazitny from Slovakia.

It will be my responsibility to pay for accommodations and transport for myself, the horse and its owners, as well as for for flights and other expenses for the team vet , Chef d’Équipe (Team Leader) and support crew.
