Held as part of a black-tie gala and dinner, the Hall of Fame paid tribute to these three extraordinary and deserving inductees.

Past president of the Canadian Equestrian Federation and former Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) committee member, Greenough was celebrated for his esteemed leadership and unwavering support of sport. Renowned as a competitor, trainer, and coach, McLellan was inducted for his remarkable and unparalleled career in the Canadian hunter industry. The Canadian Show Jumping Team comprised of Cone and Ole, Henselwood and Special Ed, Lamaze and Hickstead, and Millar and In Style fought against all odds to deliver a team silver medal for Canada at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

“The Hall of Fame Gala provides a unique opportunity to celebrate the legends of our sport in front of their peers,” said Mark Samuel, Chairman of the Jump Canada Hall of Fame. “The sense of community was incredible, and everyone went home inspired and feeling connected. It is an honour for my committee and myself to pay tribute to our industry’s amazing champions and legacy.”
