Following the email update on the cancellation of the Heritage Finals, the Heritage Circuit, and Prairie Cup Circuit, there has been some confusion.
The cancellation refers only to the point collection and calculation for the Heritage and Prairie Cup circuits and the Heritage Finals Show. When provincial health guidelines allow, the SHF will continue to sanction (offer insurance) for shows, clinics, etc. When we are able, we support and encourage Clubs to host their normal events.
Currently we are not sanctioning any shows/clinics/events prior to June 30th. As the province opens up and restrictions are lifted, we will keep everyone posted on our ability to provide sanctioning.
The SHF is advocating with the provincial government on behalf of the equine industry.
The Association has sent a letter to the Saskatchewan government on behalf of the equine sector, asking to have re-opening of equestrian facilities for the purpose of riding lessons, be moved from Phase Four to Phase One of Saskatchewan's Re-Opening of the Economy Plan. We will provide updates on any response we receive from the province. Thank you for all who have provided us with input, which has been used in creating this letter. Click here to read the letter.
In addition, to support the re-opening request, the SHF used input received from members to create a set of DRAFT Guidelines which equestrian facilities would follow, if SHF's re-opening request was approved. These Guidelines are DRAFT only, and have not been yet been approved by government officials. The SHF will provide you with prompt updates on any and all responses we receive from the Saskatchewan government. Click here for the Draft Guidelines

The suspension of Saskatchewan Horse Federation sanctioned competition has been extended to June 30, 2020, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The initial return to competition was set for April 12, 2020, but has been extended due to federal and provincial government, and Saskatchewan Authority directives to limit COVID-19 transmission. No competitions will be sanctioned by either SHF, Equine Canada or other Provincial/Territorial Sport Organizations (PTSOs) for the period of suspension.
Due to federal, provincial/territorial and local government recommendations on the movement of individuals, as well as the current states of emergency declared by provinces/territories, EC and the PTSOs recommend that all facilities that host equestrian-related activities, including but not limited to boarding stables and lesson barns, cease public-facing and non-essential activities until greenlit by the aforementioned government authorities.
If you own livestock or simply have farm animals on your land in Saskatchewan, you must now have a premises identification (PID) number. PID is an important element of an effective livestock traceability system.Read more...
