What is Equestrian…?

Equestrian is the encompassing term for all activity involving the horse or other equus species (eg. mule). The term equestrian describes both recreational and competitive riders, handlers, and drivers. Equestrian includes all disciplines or activities participated in whilst mounted on the horse, as well as unmounted disciplines or activities. It is the partnership of horse and human and, in some disciplines, horse to horse.

Mounted equestrian disciplines are commonly divided into two categories: English disciplines and Western disciplines. As a general rule of thumb, the classification of English or Western describes the type of “tack” (equipment) used on the horse. The type of tack used is the most easily distinguishable factor in the division of English and Western disciplines. Other disciplines that do not fall under the categories of English or Western include driving, halter (in-hand), and vaulting (gymnastics on horseback).

Certain breeds of the horse are often favored and are more ...

 

Getting Started

LEARNING TO RIDE – FIRST STEPS

So your child loves horses and has expressed a desire to ride? Or maybe you as adult want to start the sport of equestrian and you are not sure where to begin? You don’t have to incur the expenses of buying and boarding a horse to learn to ride. Taking lessons at a facility which offers school horses can be the best way for you and yours to begin their equestrian journey. Choosing a riding facility can seem like a daunting task but there are things you can look for and questions you can ask to help you make an informed decision.

For a listing of some facilities which offer lessons in Manitoba, you can go to www.manitobaequinedirectory.com and look through the businesses listed there to see which ones offer school horses or beginner programs. (MHC cannot recommend any particular facility - see our Help Me Find a Coach page for more tips on choosing a riding facility)

Horse Day 2018 a Success!

Manitoba joined the rest of Canada in celebrating the 10th annual Horse Day on June 2, 2018. Over 6,000 people participated and attended 75 Horse Day events from coast-to-coast. For many Canadians, Horse Day is the chance to get up close and personal with a horse for the first time. It’s also the perfect opportunity to acknowledge the important contributions made by horses in our nation's heritage and how people of all ages and experience levels can continue to enjoy horses in sport and leisure. Here in Manitoba, eight organizations took part in Horse Day. MHC stepped up to the mounting block with a photo contest, encouraging people across the province to participate in a Horse Day event and snap a pic for the contest. Nearly 30 people participated and captured beautiful moments with friends, family and – most importantly – horses. The rainy weather didn’t dampen the smiles.

At MHC, we were also smiling ear to ear all weekend – we loved seeing your Horse Day moments. Click ...
