(4) EC makes no representation or warranty, expressed or implied, about any approved protective headgear. EC cautions riders and drivers that serious injury or death may result despite wearing such headgear, as all equestrian sports involve inherent risk, and no protective headgear can protect against all foreseeable injury.
ACCIDENTS & RETURN TO PLAY 1. This rule is applicable to all competitors (including foreign) at EC sanctioned events and applies to falls/accidents that occur at the event location. 2. In the event of a fall/accident where a concussion can be reasonably suspected, (not limited to a direct blow to the head or loss of consciousness), the competitor must receive medical clearance by qualified medical personnel onsite, through the EC Accident Injury Report Form before continuing. The competitor is solely responsible for ensuring the onsite medical assessment takes place by the onsite qualified medical personnel.
If the competitor refuses to be evaluated, he/she is disqualified from the event.
3. If the qualified medical personnel suspects a concussion (regardless of symptoms displayed), or believes that the competitor may be at risk of concussion due to the nature of the fall or impact, the competitor is suspended from competition until medically released, as outlined in paragraph 6 below. 4. In the case of the preceding paragraphs, an EC Accident/Injury Report Form must be completed by either the attending Steward, Technical Delegate or the attending qualified medical personnel onsite and submitted to EC within 24 hours of the occurrence. It is the Steward’s / Technical Delegate’s responsibility to ensure forms are complete and submitted on time.

If the competitor wishes to compete after being medically released by a physician but before the EC processing period of the form, the competitor must also submit a copy of the EC Return to Play Form to the show secretary.

RANCH HORSE SECTION The purpose of Ranch Pleasure should reflect the versatility, attitude, and movement of a working horse. The horse’s performance should simulate a horse working outside the confines of an arena and that of a working ranch horse. This class should show the horse’s ability to work at a forward, working speed while under control of the rider. Light contact should be rewarded and the horse shall not be shown on a full drape of reins. The overall manners and responsiveness of the horse while performing the maneuver requirements and the horse’s quality of movement are the primary considerations.
Horses should NOT perform or be rewarded for performing gaits as they do in Western Pleasure. The horses are to be presented in a more forward-moving style than the typical Western Pleasure Horse. The horse and rider will be scored on movement, which is cadence and rhythm of gaits, smoothness and consistency in performance, along with how they perform the optional maneuvers.
The required gait maneuvers will include the walk, jog, and lope both directions; and the extended jog and extended lope going at least one direction; as well as stops, and a back. Optional maneuvers are side pass, turns of 360 degrees or more, change of lead (simple or flying), walk, jog or lope over a pole(s); or some combination of maneuvers that would be reasonable for a ranch horse to perform. The overall cadence and performance of the gaits should be free-flowing and ground covering at all gaits, with an emphasis on forward movement. Transitions should be performed where designated, with smoothness and responsiveness.
Ranch Riding: Each horse will work individually, performing both required and optional maneuvers, and scored on the basis of 0 to 100, with 70 denoting an average performance. Patterns are available at: https://www.aqha.com/journal/resources/exhibitors/patterns/ Ranch Pleasure: Horses will work as a group on the rail and will be asked to perform the required maneuvers only. DRESSAGE All Dressage classes will be conducted in accordance with 2018 rules of Equine Canada – Section E. ALL RIDERS MUST WEAR A HELMET WHEN COMPETING IN ANY DRESSAGE TEST.
Dressage Suitability: Horses enter the ring at a walk in clockwise direction at the discretion of the ringmaster and officiating judge(s). Entries are to be shown in both directions in the ring at a walk, trot and canter. Horses will not be asked to gallop but may be asked to lengthen the stride at trot. 60% paces; 30% conformation; 10% General Impression (including impulsion, balance, rideability, presence and suitability to dressage). Dressage Seat Equitation: All the movements should be obtained with invisible aids and without apparent effort of the rider. The rider should be well balanced, elastic, sitting deep in the centre of the saddle and smoothly joining the rhythm of the horse with his loins and hips supple, thighs and legs steady and well stretched downwards.
The heels should be the lowest point. The upper part of the body should be easy, free and erect on the vertical. The hands should be carried steady and low and close together, with the thumb as the highest point and independent from the seat. The elbows should be close to the body, enabling the rider to follow the movements of the horse smoothly and freely.
Class will proceed at least once around the ring at each gait – walk, trot and canter, and on command, reverse and repeat. They shall then line up on command and execute individual tests at the judge’s discretion. No individual performance may be requested that is not included in the class requirements. The judge may ask questions concerning horsemanship, anatomy of the horse, tack, stable management, etc. WESTERN DRESSAGE (Not Rated for EC Awards) Western dressage integrates the historically validated principles of dressage with the best of Western stock horse tradition. It is a systematic and progressive system of training for the Western horse and rider in traditional stock tack with the purpose of enjoying a safe, pleasurable, versatile, and useful working horse.
The hallmarks of the Western dressage horse are usefulness, rideability, willingness, safety, pure gaits, lightness, calmness, and steadiness. A Western dressage rider should be attentive and tactful. They should use clear, effective, subtle aids coupled with a confident seat and light, responsive hands in communication with their horse. Western dressage classes are offered as miscellaneous classes at EC sanctioned competitions. The section has been incorporated into the USEF Rules and these classes will be conducted according to those rules.
