In Canada, we have Provincial and National Judges. Provincial Judges can judge provincial events as well as Equestrian Canada divisions up to and including Canter B. National Judges can judge Provincial events and all Equestrian Canada divisions.
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.
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.
Horses entering CVI 3* or a CVI outside of Canada must have an FEI Passport. Horses must be micro chipped in order to recieve the Passport and FEI ID number. The FEI passport currently costs $348 and you can apply for it here:

Canadian Horses entering a CVI 1,2* in Canada require an FEI ID Number, and a Canadian EC National Passport. Horses require a micro chip for the FEI ID Number. The EC National passport costs $150 and you can get the application here:

All horses entering a CVI must have all their vaccinations up to date and entered into their relevant passport.
All vaulters who are competing outside of Canada, at either an FEI event or a National event in that country, must use the online registration system in this website to register for foreign entries. If you have any question, please contact our Foreign Entries Secretary .
Congratulations to all competitors and to our new Canadian National Champions!
This national program was approved on 2012-03-19 by the VaultCanada Sport Committee. Levels 1 through 5 are administered and managed provincially, while levels 6 through 8 are administered and managed nationally.
It is widely known that helmets should not be used when vaulting, but less widely understood why. This page introduces the basics, while our Fall g-Force Calculator page goes into all the details, provides a tool to help assess the level of risk, and states the Risk Management Guidelines for Vaulting.
The Terms of Reference is the governing document that describes how this Equine Canada Discipline committee is structured and conducts its business.
At this time, this program is only available in BC. The BC Ministry of Education has approved the application by the EVABC granting high school credits to vaulters who achieve significant milestones in their careers. The program provides opportunities for the following credits:
