Eiren Crawford is a BC born and raised Canadian Dressage rider with International experience at the highest levels.
Eiren grew up with horses and has dreamed of representing Canada at the Olympics since she was a young girl. In 2002, Eiren left Canada for Europe to work for Olympian, Ingrid Klimke, in Germany. This catapulted her journey, taking her to some of the best equestrian locations in America and Europe. Working for, and learning from four Olympians, she was privy to some of the world’s best training and developed her technique to bring horses to the highest levels while maintaining a positive spirit.
Over the past five years she has proven her skills in the most difficult competitions in the US, finishing with top placings at internationally sanctioned competitions in Wellington, Florida, Devon (PA), Temecula and Sacramento (Calif).
During the years away she has continued to return to BC and the Prairies to support the dressage community with ongoing clinics and educational opportunities. In 2018, Eiren moved back to Canada with the goal of focusing on her Olympic dream while helping to develop future local dressage riders.
For those of you who are dressage enthusiasts some of the other Olympians Eiren has worked with and/or received training from include: Ashley Holzer, Canada; Lars Pederson, Denmark; Morten Thompson, Denmark; Ingrid Klimke, Germany and our own Leslie Reid from B.C.
