Competitions and COVID-19
When competitions are once again permitted in the province, the 'Return to Competition' Protocols produced by Manitoba Horse Council are the guiding document accepted by the Province.
The Return to Competition protocols will apply whether an event is:
- formally sanctioned (such as EC Bronze, Silver, Gold competitions, etc.) or
- nominally sanctioned by MHC because it is held by an MHC member club,
Various other groups unaffiliated with MHC may find the Return to Competition protocols and documents useful. It is the document approved by the province for any equestrian/riding activity, not solely Manitoba Horse Council member events,
With the Return to Competition protocols, various elements come into play:
Event organisers should produce a COVID-19 plan for each event they hold, and are encouraged to lodge with MHC for archive purposes prior to the event.
Daily health declarations from each event should be kept by the organiser for 21 days; liability waivers and releases should be kept for 3 years. MHC can store these liability waivers and releases for the required period, with your list of event attendees. See the storage cover sheet below in "Useful documents".
