Competition Guidelines

Hope Haven Video Competitions provide equestrians of all abilities, in particular those involved with a therapeutic/adaptive riding centre, a cost effective avenue for competition in the comfort of their home facility and with their familiar mount.

A unique advantage of our competitions is that we provide a list of compensating aids allowed for specific intellectual disabilities as well as physical impairments in order to encourage the highest level of independence for each competitor.
