COVID-19

The Spruce Meadows Organizing Committee, with the unanimous support of the Spruce Meadows Board of Directors, has determined that current circumstances, brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and its related impacts and restrictions, will prevent the Spruce Meadows Summer Series from being organized and run on its historic June/July dates.

Last year was really something else. The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the way we work, play, and celebrate. Like so many other events, COVID-19 forced the cancellation of Horse Council BC's (HCBC) popular BC Equine Education Summit and the Community Talks Travelling Road Show. Our horse community is strong and we are resilient. We will not let COVID-19 bully us.

Equestrian Canada (EC) extends heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Eva “Evi” Maria Pracht of Stouffville, ON, who passed away on Feb. 15, 2021, at the age of 83.

How guest ranches and riding resorts have survived and thrived during the pandemic - It’s been almost a year now since we began dealing with the repercussions of the global pandemic, and we’re not yet anywhere near “business as usual.” No aspect of the horse industry remains untouched.

Horses cannot simply be parked; they need to be cared for, and wages need to be paid.

Resilience: Rethinking, Restructuring, Reevaluating due to COVID-19 - Every year since 2016, University of Guelph equine faculty and students have organized the Equine Industry Symposium to bring together experts and horse enthusiasts from Canada’s equine community and discuss horse industry issues. In 2020, there was only one topic on everyone’s mind: how Canada’s equine industry would make it through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and what the industry would look like in its aftermath.

An unprecedented outpouring of public support and a grassroots fundraising effort have led to a reversal of the announced cancellation of the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event CCI Five-Star presented by MARS Equestrian™ (LRK3DE). A new partnership between Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI), producer of the world-class event, and the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation combined with the support of US Equestrian and longstanding sponsors Land Rover, Mars Equestrian, and Rolex will ensure that the CCI5*-L three-day event will be held, without spectators, alongside a new CCI4*-S, April 22-25, 2021 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.

Equestrian Canada (EC) has issued its first Registered and Licensed Coach Statuses through the recently launched Coach Status Program, representing exciting steps forward for the Canadian equestrian community towards increased standards of safety and professionalism.
