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 Events Calendar
