What is Heritage Circuit?
Heritage Circuit is a provincial competition program with the purpose of generating and maintaining participation in General Performance across Saskatchewan by supporting clubs, gaining interest from athletes, coaches and breeders to competitions at an introductory level. The Saskatchewan Horse Federation ensures that riders of all ages, recreational or competitive, have the opportunity to learn to compete, keeping fees reasonable and competitions accessible in each of the Sport Districts around the province.
The SHF Officials Program ensures that provincial officials are trained, educated, and accessible for show organizers. The provincial competition program includes multiple disciplines where all breeds are recognized.
The annual Heritage Circuit Provincial Finals provides a venue where all disciplines are able to participate over 3 days. SHF rewards athletes for their dedication to the equestrian competitive sports. After having nominated, and qualifying at local and provincial shows, points from the annual standings are then calculated and prizes are distributed during a special ceremony at the end of the fiscal year.
