> MHC Return to Competition protocols

MHC's Return to Competition protocols have been approved, and sanctioned competitions may now take place with the implementation of social distancing, sanitizing, health declarations and waivers etc. Full details are in the above-linked document. Useful signage and other documentation is being uploaded to the Competition page of this site.

Even if your planned equestrian event is not linked to MHC, we encourage you to read and use the Return to Play/Return to Competition protocols as they are the guidelines approved by the Province of Manitoba, and are the standard to which your event will be held.

For those who have questions about holding an event, MHC is holding an Open Council of Clubs meeting on July 14 at 6:00 p.m., via Zoom, and all are invited to attend. Please pre-register at this link.

Please note that provincial guidelines may be amended from time to time and it is the hosting facility/event organizer's responsibility to be aware of any changes. Please look at the website link above if you are unsure.
