    Thumbs up Equine Canada - major rule change - Helmets required, all levels

    Equine Canada posted a major rule change. All EC Sanctioned Dressage shows are requiring riders to wear helmets, no matter the age or level of competition.

    Way to go Equine Canada!!!

    Link to the rule book where the specific change was made:
