Ontario Equestrian Federation
A Partnership in Training & Certification
The Ontario Equestrian Federation (OEF) is partnering with Equine Guelph to provide its members short, easily-accessible training programs so you can stay up-to-date on the latest information on equine care and welfare. This partnership enables the OEF to offer continuing education and certification opportunities for our members – athletes, coaches, officials, facilities and horse caregivers.
OEF Membership Benefits
