MEMBERSHIP TOOLBOX FOR HORSE TRIALS ENTRIES
You need 3 memberships to enter a recognized Horse Trials. The initials in brackets match the correct spot to put your membership numbers on the Eventing entry form.
- Equestrian Canada Sport Licence (EC-SL)– Bronze (EV90 (PreTraining) and lower); Silver (EV100 (Training); Gold (EV110 (Preliminary). Remember to purchase by March 31 each year to avoid the late fee. Note: Horse Owners must also have a Sport Licence at the correct level.
- Horse Council BC (Prov #)– Riders and owners of horses must have current HCBC membership
- BC Eventing (PHTA #)– This is purchased as an add-on to your Horse Council BC. It is not a separate card or number. It shows up as an additional line on your HCBC card. If you already have your HCBC membership, to add BCEA, log in and select “Add Another Membership” and follow the prompts.
When you purchase these memberships online, they show up right away and the entry secretaries can see that you have them. Purchasing your memberships online ahead of entering a horse trials will save you and the event organizers a lot of time and headaches.
Remember all riders must have completed a minimum of 2 events at EV90 (Pre Training) level with qualifying scores in order to be able to move up to EV 100 (Training). All must have completed a minimum of 3 events at EV100 (Training) with qualifying results in order to be able to move up to EV110 (Preliminary). See full EC Participation Eligibility table and scroll down to the Horse Trials Participation Policy.
EV100 (Training) and above must complete the Qualifications of Horse and Rider section on the bottom of the entry form. Keep track of your competition scores to make this easier for you.
All horses at Training and above must have a current EC Horse Recording or passport.
Owners of horses competing must have HCBC and EC-SL at the level competing.
