WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO SANCTION A COMPETITION?
The fundamental reason for sanctioning a competition is to ensure that someone other than the show organizer is responsible for overseeing the risk management of the competition, and to ensure a fair playing field is consistently maintained for all exhibitors who participate in equestrian sport events.
Equestrian Canada (EC) sanctioned competitions are national competitions governed by Equestrian Canada discipline rules. EC licensed officials, judges, course designers, technical delegates, and stewards are required to officiate at EC national competitions . Equestrian Canada competition documents and more information can be found on the Equestrian Canada website at https://www.equestrian.ca/ EC Bronze and Silver Competitions held in B.C are administered directly by Horse Council BC with all application forms and documents submitted directly to Horse Council BC at [email protected]
Horse Council BC recognized events are provincial sanctioned competitions administered directly by Horse Council BC. HCBC sanctioned competitions are governed by current Horse Council BC Rule Book.
