COVID-19 and Equestrian Facilities

The Alberta Equestrian Federation (AEF) does not have the authority to regulate facility operations in Alberta – we have the responsibility to educate our community. We know the importance of maintaining the welfare of Alberta’s horses and are committed to speaking up for our four-legged friends. We thank our membership for their patience while we work to navigate and demand transparency for our industry.

March 2020: Equestrian Canada (EC) would like to provide an update regarding its ongoing advocacy on behalf of equine farms and equestrian facilities facing financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as offer resources for support during this unprecedented disruption of normal business operations. You may find the full update here: Support and Resources for Equine Farms and Equestrian Facilities.
