Terrance Millar Steps Down from Equestrian Canada Director Role

Veteran official and team leader Terrance Millar will be stepping down as a Director at Equestrian Canada (EC), the country's national equestrian federation, after informing the EC Board of his decision. 

The Jump Canada Hall of Fame inductee (2011) had served as a member of EC’s Bylaws Task Force prior to his election as a Director, and played an instrumental role in the process of modernizing, restructuring and reorganizing EC’s governance and Bylaws over the past 18 months.

In addition to his role as a Director, Millar also served as Chef de Mission for the Canadian Equestrian Team at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and remained as a member of the Jumping Committee (formerly named Jump Canada). Millar — no relation to show jumping legend Ian Millar — intends to continue to serve as a member of the Jumping Committee.

Over the past year in his role as chef d’equipe, Millar has been in contact with top riders such as Eric Lamaze about proposed changes to equestrian sports at the Olympic Games. 

“We were privileged to have Terrance on our Board, given his long experience in the equestrian world,” said Jorge Bernhard, EC President. “Terrance is well recognized in Canada and internationally through his long-standing career as an Olympian and his involvement at senior levels with Canadian jumping.”

EC has been working to find the efficiencies required to build a top-class, unified Federation consisting of a more practical and workable balance between the roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of the EC staff and those of the volunteer Discipline Committees.
