May 4, 2020 – Equestrian Canada (EC) would like to share a return to business operations framework with the Canadian equestrian community in anticipation of the conclusion of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This decision is made with heavy hearts and an acute awareness of the significant ripple effects. Our flagship ‘Masters’ Tournament was scheduled to be a “best ever” edition in 2020. Highlights were to include the world’s best horses and riders competing at the biggest tournament in show jumping, wonderful shopping, exhibits and entertainment programs. These included the RCMP Musical Ride, Fire Fit, the World Blacksmith Championships, Friday’s ‘Evening of the Horse’, military colour and the wonderful voices of the Tenors, just to touch the surface.

In light of the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Equestrian Canada and Equestrian Provincial/Territorial Sport Organizations (PTSOs) Canada-wide are warning the horse community to bunker down, cancel events, and rescind all equine-related activities. Those who choose to ignore these recommendations should do so with the knowledge of risks involved, from a social, ethical, and legal standpoint. “The NBEA [New Brunswick Equestrian Associaiton] strongly recommends that riding establishments and coaches confirm with their respective insurance companies to ensure compliance if you continue to offer programs and services during this period."
