Club Membership


Offered on a calendar-year basis, our Club/Association Membership is available to equine/equestrian discipline or breed clubs/associations. Members have representation on the Equestrian NS Board of Directors via the designated Club Director position. 

Insurance Requirements

Although there is a minimum criteria to join us, clubs/associations are required to have commercial general liability insurance coverage, (minimum coverage limit of $2,000,000). The policy is to include Equestrian NS as an "additional insured". We highly recommend that member clubs/associations carry Directors' and Officers' Liability insurance.

Our insurance partner, ACERA Insurance, can meet equine breed or discipline clubs and associations' insurance needs.

Two types of insurance offered specifically for clubs and associations are:

Commercial General Liability Insurance -  Insurance that protects the organization, board members, volunteers, employees and others acting in an official capacity for bodily injury and/or property damage claims arising from activities as filed with Underwriters. Coverage limit $5,000,000 per occurrence and includes claims arising from injury to "participants" Extensions included (see attached).

Management Liability (Formerly Director's and Officer's Liability) -  a special coverage available separately to Clubs who require insurance to protect the officers and directors of the organization for "wrongful acts" arising from their official duties. Coverage limits available $1,000,000 - $5,000,000. Coverage may be extended to the actual ownership of land/buildings, and the operation or maintenance of equine facilities where you Own, Rent or Maintain Land/Building(s) for more than 15 consecutive days.
