Canada and US Rule Differences

There are some key differences in the Canadian and US Working Equitation Rules and it is your responsibility to understand the differences. If in doubt, check with the Judge or Technical Delegate at the show your are attending.

Most importantly for Canadians, there are some rule changes that have been adopted to be more in line with WAWE rules (World Association for Working Equitation), which will result in disqualification if you are at a US show. They are summarized in the Canada and US Rule Differences file with item numbers to reference the complete rule at the Rules link at the top of this page.
