New Vaccination Rule Taking Effect in 2020


A new Equestrian Canada (EC) rule on vaccinations (A519) will be universally enforced for all equines entering EC sanctioned competitions beginning in 2020. Article A519 has been added under Section A: General Regulations of the EC Rules with the aim of reducing the potential for disease to spread at EC sanctioned competitions.

EC strongly recommends that in preparation for the new rule, all equines at competitions or events be accompanied by proof that Equine Influenza and Equine Herpes Virus (1 & 4) vaccinations have been administered at a maximum of 12-month intervals. However, horses competing in competitions should receive a booster for Equine Influenza and Equine Herpes Virus within six (6) months +21 days before arrival at an event.

Additionally, no horse should receive vaccination within seven (7) days of arrival of a competition. The frequency of vaccine administration should be as recommended by the vaccine manufacturer or veterinarian, and it is recommended that vaccines be administered by or under the direction of a veterinarian. Article A519 also outlines acceptable vaccination documentation.
