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:
All vaulters who are competing outside of Canada, at an FEI event must sign up through the EC Authorization to compete Portal:

The Terms of Reference is the governing document that describes how this Equine Canada Discipline committee is structured and conducts its business.
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.
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.
This page provides a technical overview of how to calculate the force a vaulter experiences during a fall, including an introduction to g-force calculations with references and sources, an official test method that uses readily available tools, comparisons to other sports, and finally, recommendations specific to vaulting.
Thank you to Bretta DeLuca for putting together this excellent overview of what to expect at a vaulting competition!
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 AA. National Judges can judge Provincial events and all Equestrian Canada divisions.
