January 29th - Covid-19 Update
Dear NSEF Member,

Effective Today, Friday, January 29, 2021, sport bubbles have increased to a maximum of 60 people - including coaches/instructors/riders/support persons - at any one time in the "field of play" without having to social distance from each other.

Please keep in mind that the "maximum of 60 " pertains to all sport. For our sport, the "field of play" refers to the show/training ring.

While continuing to ensure all return to equestrian activity protocols are in place (i.e. traceability measures, mask wearing outside of ring, cleaning and disinfecting routines, non-sharing of tack, etc.), the following activities are permitted:

  1. Lessons and training;
  2. Learn to Ride/Drive testing;
  3. Coach/Instructor Evaluations;
  4. Competitions;
  5. Clinics/Training Camps;
  6. Recreational activity such as trail rides;
  7. March Break day-camps (2020 Government Day-Camp Guidelines) 2021 guidelines are not yet available and may be updated to reflect changes - use 2020 for planning.

The following are not permitted:

  1. Spectators (including auditors);
  2. Overnight camps;

On behalf of the NSEF Board of Directors, I want to thank you for your amazing efforts and your patience while we work our way through Covid-19.

Next steps for us will be to update our Competitions and Event forms to reflect 2021 changes and updates. Stay tuned.

Sincerely,
Heather Myrer
Executive Director
