Equestrian Canada Announces Return To Competition Guidelines For Sport Horses


Ottawa, ON, May 21, 2020 – Equestrian Canada (EC) is pleased to announce the launch of the Return to Competi- tion Guidelines for the Sport Horse Following a Break in Training Due to COVID-19. Many sport horses


across the country have been partially or fully out of training due to varying restrictions relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This pause in training impacts the horse’s ability to return to competition safely and gradually. As provinces and ter-


ritories start to lift restric- tions


relating to


COVID-19, all equestrian sport participants have a responsibility to ensure that horses return to an appropriate fitness level before re-entering com- petition. The Return to Competition Guidelines for Sport Horses provide guidance to that effect.


View The Guidelines- https://bit.ly/2WWFmFT A working group of


equestrian experts de- signed the guidelines to help athletes, coaches, trainers and owners deter- mine their horse’s current level of fitness and iden- tify a reconditioning plan moving forward. Re- search indicates that horses start to lose fitness after four weeks out of training and may lose all fitness if out of training for more than 12 weeks. The guidelines provide both general and disci- pline-specific principles and sample recondition- ing plans based off this timeline. “Returning to sport


takes thought and time for equine as well as human athletes,” said James Hood, EC Director


of High Performance and FEI Relationships. “Each horse will be at various stages of fitness due to the pandemic and we need to ensure that they are set up for a safe re- turn. Logical and progres- sive reconditioning will help to reduce the poten- tial for injury during the return to competition.” Hood added, “This


all based on when clear- ance is given from the ap- propriate government authority to allow for the return to competition.” Remember to follow


the health guidelines pro- vided by your local, re- g i o n a l , provincial/territorial and federal governments as you resume activity, as


these agencies or their de- signees are responsible for determining when and how each area of the country reopens. Addi- tionally, all return to com- petition will be dictated by the applicable govern- ment bodies based on the state of COVID-19 in your jurisdiction. When returning to


any level of activity, sport or competition, remem- ber to consider and fol- low biosecurity best practices to protect the health and welfare of both your own horse(s) and the national herd. For questions regard-


ing the Return to Compe- tition for Sport Horses Guidelines, contact James Hood at jhood@eques-

ment on COVID-19, in- cluding regular updates, can be found on our web- site

AFFIX OLD ADDRESS HERE Meet That's One Cool Cat!


This 15.3 hand 6 year old mare is looking for her forever home. She is a gorgeous mover, and would make a lovely


broodmare to cross for a sport horse. It is unlikely she will be sound enough for riding, but she is sound enough for full turnout and to be a great mother. Video available. If you want to meet Cat, please contact LongRun.
