So You Want to Compete


As restrictions surrounding the Covid-19 begin to ease, riders are looking to bring their horses carefully back into work and prepare for competition. Since many horses have had a complete break from training, conditioning correctly becomes vital to prevent injuries and setbacks. 


Equestrian Canada pulled experts together to create safe, sensible, discipline specific guidelines for returning to work:

criteria and guidelines


The parameters for earning points on this year’s Bronze competition circuit have been clarified for 2020.


  • Riders must compete in two Bronze shows in order to be eligible for year-end titles.
  • Points from Equitation classes are earned by the rider. Points for all other classes are earned by the horse, no matter who is riding.
  • Only classes listed in a competition’s approved prize list that match the posted descriptors will be eligible for points. As always, shows are free to offer any classes they wish, but only those that match our document will be counted for points.
  • Only classes that appear in the show's approved prize list will be counted.
