All show approval applications, appropriate fees, and FINAL show flyer (including liability disclaimer - see sample below) must be submitted to OFEA a minimum of 45 days prior to the desired date of the show.

Preliminary show approval may be obtained by telephone - to be confirmed with a written application form with the appropriate fee(s). The completed show approval application, a copy of the show flyer, and the appropriate show approval fee(s) should be sent to the address indicated.

Approved Judges

All final OFEA show approvals are pending selection of an OFEA approved judge or an approved guest carded judge. Judges with guest cards may judge only one OFEA approved show during the same calendar year.

OFEA Rules

While we encourage show management to have as many show approvals possible for members, OFEA rules must prevail.

Show Results Due Within 14 Days

Show Results must be submitted to OFEA, PO Box 5754, Salem OR  97304 within 14 days of completion of the show. If show results are NOT received within that time, OFEA may assess a late fee of $5 each day until the show results are received. Results must include (for each class): class name, number of paid entries in each class, exhibitor name, horse name, and either the originals or copies of the Judge's placing cards.

Liability Clause

State Law and our insurance company have advised us to use the following Liability Statement on all show flyers:  


Participation Agreement, Notice Release, and Acknowledgement of Risk: I accept and clearly understand that riding a horse can be hazardous, especially in an equestrian event; that there are inherent and other risks involved in riding a horse; and that injuries are a common and ordinary occurrence. I freely accept and assume those risks. I therefore release Oregon Family Equestrian Association (OFEA), its members and show grounds’ owners and all of their agents and employees, from any and all liability for damage and injury to myself, my horse, or to any person or property resulting from my riding a horse in this equestrian event, accepting myself the full responsibility for any and all such damage or injury of any kind which may result. I agree to fully indemnify, defend, and hold OFEA, show grounds’ owners and all of their agents and employees, harmless from any and all claims, actions, liability, or costs including attorney fees and other costs of defense, arising out of or in any way related to my riding a horse in this equestrian event. The limitations on liability provided in ORS 30.691 shall apply to an adult participant in the circumstances listed in subsection (1)(b) of this section if the participant, prior to riding, training, driving, grooming or riding as a passenger upon an equine, knowingly executes a release stating that as a condition of participation, the participant waives the right to bring an action against the equine professional or equine activity sponsor for an injury or death arising out of riding, training, driving, grooming or riding as a passenger upon the equine. A release so executed shall be binding upon the adult participant.  


I hereby certify that every horse is eligible as entered. I make these entries at my own risk and understand that equine events are potentially dangerous. Show management, owners of the facility, and/or Oregon Family Equestrian Activities shall not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss that may occur to any exhibitor, their representatives, or to their horses, equipment, or vehicles. Presentation of this entry with my entry fee shall be deemed acceptance of the above. I understand and agree that this show shall be conducted under the rules of Oregon Family Equestrian Association and that of the Show Management. 

In applying for OFEA show approval, the undersigned and sponsoring organization agrees to abide all the rules of the Oregon Family Equestrian Association.
