Membership Benefits

2018 Membership runs from January 1, 2018 until December 31, 2018.  It is important that you renew by December 31st to keep your insurance coverage active! We hear that many members wait until show season, but by doing this, 3 or 4 months of insurance coverage is lost.

IMPORTANT - If you have held a membership in previous years but allowed it to lapse, please RENEW your membership rather than purchasing a new one. If you need to renew a lapsed membership to cover the last few months of 2017 and the full year of 2018, please call the office for a special offer.

Experience the benefits of membership

Horse enthusiasts know that the Manitoba Horse Council adds value to their equestrian lifestyle.

That’s because 2000+ horse enthusiasts are MHC members who reap the benefits of belonging. From services and information to benefits not found anywhere else, the MHC represents individual members and clubs from all sectors of the horse industry.

For professionals, amateurs, competitors and recreational enthusiasts of all ages and disciplines, the MHC is committed to horse welfare, advocacy and accessibility.

Every member receives industry leading insurance coverage at preferential rates. And only members are able to participate in MHC and Equestrian Canada programs, receive free e-newsletters and enjoy insider updates on equine events and news.

MHC members continue to be eligible for a preferential subscription rate to Canadian Horse Journal magazine.

New for 2018 - riders/drivers in Manitoba's Provincial Parks can purchase their Park Passes at the same time as they purchase their MHC membership. 

We invite you to join your fellow horse enthusiasts today!
