The NSEF Scotia Series is a provincial program designed to promote and encourage participation in western, english, hunter, hack, jumper, dressage, and driving disciplines across Nova Scotia. The program supports community horse clubs, generating interest and encouraging athletes and coaches to achieve personal success at competitions at an introductory or grassroots level.
The NSEF supports and facilitates the activities that take place at qualifying events to ensure athletes of all ages, recreational or competitive, have the opportunity to compete. Scotia Series rewards athletes and their horse for their dedication by recognizing their efforts at the local, district and provincial level through our series' awards program.
All Scotia Series Competitions are found in our
Online system for organizers and online entry. Further details below.
Organizers who have questions about hosting a Scotia Series competition can contact the NSEF Office for details. Scotia Series competitions can be held in conjunction with other competitions and organizers are not required to host all Scotia Series classes. Simply host the classes you want to hold.
Organizers submit a date application form as per the Date Application Policy
After the date approval process, organizers create the competition in Horseport.pro and submit the Scotia Series Sanctioning Requirements: Competition information, official information, application fee, bond cheque, prize list/competition information, and competition insurance certificate at least 4 weeks prior to the competition.
After the competition, organizers submit any NSEF memberships collected on our behalf (if applicable), the Scotia Series Remittance Information, the competition results and the $3 per competitor fee. This fee can be charged directly to the competitor or included in the competition administration fee. The fees go towards year-end awards and the administration of the Scotia Series.
The Awards are presented at our Annual Awards Reception in November. The Scotia Series Points are available for competitors to check throughout the year and there is a short final audit once all of the results are entered (normally early October).
