Q: Do I need a membership to compete in Nova Scotia?
A: Although you don’t require a NSHJA membership to compete, you will need a membership if you want to earn points for year-end awards. You are required to have an Equestrian Canada and Nova Scotia Equestrian Federation Membership in order to compete in Nova Scotia.

Q: How do I get a membership?
A: You can get a NSHJA membership when purchasing your NSEF membership. If you are from out of province you must contact NSEF to purchase a NSHJA membership.

Q: I didn’t join NSHJA until June. Will my points from my May & June shows count?
A: No. Memberships will have points accrued towards NSHJA Year End Awards ONLY from the date of joining. Points may not be awarded retroactively as stated in the Equestrian Canada Rule Book.
