Hundreds of horse shows are held across the province. While some are sanctioned by the OEF and Equine Canada (EC), others are run independently without any sort of endorsement. It’s not mandatory to sanction a horse show; however, there are tangible benefits for organizers who choose to register their horse shows.
Equine Canada’s Not in Good Standing (NIGS) List
Equine Canada deems members not in good standing during a period in which:
They owe fees, dues or other obligations to their PSO or EC, or to an EC-sanctioned competition.
They have been suspended by EC or a PSO, the national federation of another country that is a member of the FEI, or the FEI itself. Note: Members who have been suspended by a National Federation of another country that is a member of the FEI, or the FEI itself, may apply for a review of the penalty applicable in Canada by the Judicial Review Committee.
