Competition Guidelines

Please download Competition Guidelines here.


Hope Haven Video Competitions provide equestrians of all (dis)abilities and diverse needs an opportunity 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.

Try something new! How about the Working Trail class. We have used basic equipment for creating the elements therefore should be accessible to most equestrian centres. For your horsemanship or ground work participants, they are able to compete as well in the Working Trail - Unmounted class.

Any compensating aids used in your video must be indicated on your registration form or the judges may deduct marks. Please see the list of available aids in the Competition Guidelines.
