Shows - Getting Started

Shows are a way of testing your and your horse's skills against those of other teams. Besides the fact that they are fun, it is a fantastic way of setting goals and progressing up the levels.

In order for you and your horse to compete at a graded show, you need to do the following:

  1. Register Horse, Owner and Rider with SAEF.
  2. Register with a Club in your province.
  3. Register with the Discipline(s) in which you wish to compete.


    In order for a horse to be registered with SAEF, it needs to have an SAEF( FEI IX) Passport. The identification section of the passport needs to be completed and signed by a vet. Ponies will also need annual height certificates.
