Earlier this year Equestrian Canada (EC) Sport Licence Holders were invited to submit suggestions for rule changes. These were reviewed by discipline experts and the EC National Rules Committee. The 2019 Rule Change Proposals (RCPs) are now posted for comment.

It is the right of every EC Sport Licence Holder to propose amendments to the rules, subject to the current policies, procedures and schedules.

RCPs will be posted on the EC website at www.equestrian.ca/programs-services/rules for a 30-day review and comment period. During this time EC encourages competitors, officials and coaches to read the proposals and offer comment. The deadline for comments is Oct. 7, 2018.

EC will consider pertinent comments and modify/correct/withdraw any RCPs requiring attention prior to publication of the 2019 rules. EC Sport Licence Holders will receive a notice once the finalized 2019 rules are available and posted on the EC website.

To send comments or questions regarding the EC rules process, please contact Lindsey Blakely at rules@equestrian.ca.
