Idea
An equivariant connection is a connection on a bundle $\nabla$ over a space $X$ with action by a group $H$ whuch is equipped with $H$equivariant structure, hence equivalently – in the language of higher differential geometry of smooth groupoids – an extension of a connection $\nabla \;\colon\; X \longrightarrow \mathbf{B}G_{conn}$ to a connection $\nabla_{equ}$ on the action groupoid $X//H$:
$\array{
X &\stackrel{\nabla}{\longrightarrow}& \mathbf{B}G_{conn}
\\
\downarrow & \nearrow_{\mathrlap{\nabla_{equ}}}
\\
X//H
}
\,.$
