The Equestrian Canada Rules for Vaulting in Canada state in Article L301 that: "The criteria for scoring is explained in detail in the FEI Guidelines for Vaulting Judges which is published annually on the FEI Vaulting Website." The notices posted here are supplemental to the FEI Guidelines for cases where the FEI Guidelines do not cover specifics needed in the context of the Canadian rules and/or competition systems.
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.
The updating criteria for judges is found in the official program document here .
Please check the Upcoming Events for the dates and locations of future Judges Clinics.

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.
Thank you to Bretta DeLuca for putting together this excellent overview of what to expect at a vaulting competition!
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.
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.
