2021 Competition Guidelines
and Resource Tools
As we head into the 2021 competition season with Covid-19 restrictions and limitations still in place, we are dedicated to providing you with guidance as you return to hosting and participating in equestrian activities and competitions.

Although we recognize that equestrian sport is one of the few sports that can adhere to social distancing relatively easily, there are many other requirements that organizers, event hosts and ALL participants must consider.

We are pleased to offer you supporting tools to help you ensure that Covid-19 protocols are properly implemented and followed at equestrian venues. We hope they are of value to you.

Please be advised that the Government of NS is the ultimate authority and restrictions may change with very little time to adapt. As such, it is imperative that you monitor the government's
Covid-19 communications by visiting its website.
All equestrian competition and event hosts/organizers must have and implement a Covid-19 Plan that adheres to the Provincial Government's Covid-19 restrictions and requirements.

NSEF staff are happy to assist you with developing your plan. Although you are not legally required to submit your plan to us, we are requesting that you complete the "Organizer/Host Declaration Form" and submit to NSEF at least 10 days prior to your event. This is required by all hosts/organizers regardless of sanctioning body.
Thank you for respecting our role in this capacity.
Thank you for your patience while we work together within the parameters of the NS Health Authority. As always, please feel free to reach out to us with your questions, comments or concerns to nsef@sportnovascotia.ca
