COVID-19 Recommendations for MSEDA Schooling Shows Based on US Equestrian Federation COVID-19 Action Plan

Revised June 8, 2021

Face Coverings/Masks

  • Competition Organizers of competitions must comply with state and local requirements regarding use of face coverings/masks. In the absence of state or local requirements, MSEDA recommends compliance with CDC guidelines. In an effort to mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19, Competition Organizers can impose more restrictive requirements if they so choose. You can find recommendations for proper use of face coverings/masks via the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website.
  • Any Individual may choose to wear a face covering/mask even when not required, and can do so without penalty.


  • Subject to state and local restrictions, spectators are permitted to attend competitions and are subject to the same requirements as all other persons on competition grounds, including the Plan requirements.
  • Spectator capacity: Competition organizers must take into account the relative size of their venues and comply with any state or local capacity restrictions.
  • Competition Organizers must provide multiple sanitization stations throughout the spectator seating/viewing areas if spectators are present.
  • Competition Organizers must make multiple PA announcements throughout each competition day to remind spectators of the competition’s COVID-19 safety requirements.

Enforcement Authority

  • The Competition organizer has the authority to remove from the facility any person who does not comply with the regulations and requirements in effect at the competition.  Stewards/Technical Delegates must report the removal of any person from competition grounds for non-compliance with regulations and requirements in effect at the competition in the TD Report.
