In Canada, we have Provincial and Equine Canada Judges. Provincial Judges can judge provincial events as well as Equine Canada divisions up to and including Canter B. Equine Canada Judges can judge Provincial events and all Equine Canada divisions.
Qualifications for Vaulting Stewards in Canada
Equine Canada stewards (minimum Recorded 2) who are interested in adding vaulting to their credentials may apply to VaultCanada for certification as a vaulting steward.
A prospective vaulting steward must shadow at a minimum of one Equine Canada recognized bronze-silver-gold vaulting competition under the supervision of a certified VaultCanada vaulting steward.
The Terms of Reference is the governing document that describes how this Equine Canada Discipline committee is structured and conducts its business.
When you want to enter an event like a CVI or world championships, the requirements are quite different than what you would expect at regular Canadian vaulting competitions. You will be entering on behalf of your country so this involves both Equine Canada and the International Equestrian Federation.
Equine Canada has simplified the process for renewing your FEI Registration, for those vaulters who are competing at CVIs. Instead of printing out and faxing/scanning a PDF to send to the EC office, you can now just grab your Sport License Number and password (same as your Sport License renewal) and head over to this link:
VaultCanada is the Discipline Committee of Equine Canada

It is widely known that helmets should not be used when vaulting, but less widely understood why.
This page contains information about, and downloads for, National, Provincial, and FEI rules plus the Guidelines for both barrel competitions and other unrecognized classes that may be offered in Canadian competitions. Also included are links to the FEI Guidelines and Code of Points.
