Jump Canada has named Brian Gingras as the 2012 Owner of the Year. Gingras was honoured in a special ceremony held during the annual Jump Canada Hall of Fame Gala on November 4 in Toronto, ON. In 2009, Brian Gingras' daughter Elizabeth started riding with Canadian Olympian Jill Henselwood. This new partnership forged the way for Henselwood to pursue her career with international caliber horses on the Canadian showjumping team riding George, owned by B. Gingras Equestrian Limited, at the 2011 Pan American Games and the 2012 Olympics, while preparing Elizabeth to take over the reins and enter the international ring. Riding Avensis 4, IV Ever and George, Henselwood has been a force to be reckoned with each time she enters the Grand Prix ring. Recently, Henselwood and George finished in second place in the Pfizer $1 Million Grand Prix at HITS-on-the-Hudson, held September 7-9, 2012.

"We are very pleased to be named as the 2012 Jump Canada Owner of the Year," said Gingras, of Edmonton, AB. "It is quite an honour to be included in such exclusive company as the previous winners of this award."
