Currently the organizing committee has agreed that Horse Trials will run as NS has athletes for both levels of Horse Trials. However a decision has not been made on the other 3 disciplines. As we wait to hear back from other provinces, we will be be accepting additional ACE Declarations.

We will notify all declared athletes as soon as a decision has been made.

Biosecurity Series

In the Barn - #3 Keep Hands, Clothes, & Boots Clean

Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, and use a single-use towel to dry them.

Have several alcohol-based hand sanitizes available.

Watch where you're touching your horse - eyes, nose and mouth are where germs want to be, so don't give them a hand!

Designated boots for the barn is best - remember, they still need to be cleaned regularly.

Spread the Word not the Germs
