According to Manitoba’s Highway Traffic Act, horse riders and drivers of horse-drawn carriages have the same right to use the road and must follow the same rules, but it is found increasingly that motorists are unaware of their own responsibilities in road sharing.
With increased development in rural areas and the reduction in off-road trails, motorists are more likely than ever to encounter a horse and rider or horse and cart on the roadway.
The Road Safety project includes a brochure for the motorist “Sharing the Road with Horses” and a Road Safety Handbook for riders.
A copy of the "Sharing the Road with Horses" brochure PDF can be downloaded here.
For bulk supplies please contact the MHC office 204-925-5718.

P'TIT TROT Western Riding Lessons for Young Kids AGES 6 to 12 - with little or no riding experience
The P’tit Trot program provides children with a pleasant introduction to horseback riding. Depending on the program enrollment level of the participant, some of the learning components may include: grooming, hoof care, general horse care, basic tack, parts of the saddle, adjusting a halter, colors, breeds, how to mount the horse, sitting trot, and transitions between the gaits. Each level has both a theoretical and practical component that participants must learn by the end of the level to move on to the next. Each level focuses on specific components of riding and more importantly, on taking care of the participants’ new friend—the horse! As each component is learned, participants progress to the point where they are able to master a specific skill. Games are incorporated into each component providing the riders the opportunity to learn by playing. Participants will be required to wear ...
WHAT TO WEAR TO YOUR FIRST RIDING LESSON
While it isn’t necessary to go out and purchase a full riding wardrobe for your first lesson, there are a few must haves which will make your experience safe, comfortable and fun.
ASTM CERTIFIED RIDING HELMET
This is the single most important piece of equipment you need to own. Approved ASTM riding helmets must be properly fitted to the rider so they don’t slip or fly off during riding. Riding helmets are designed specifically for riding and the types of injuries a rider could experience. Substituting a non- sport specific helmet such as a hockey helmet is NOT recommended and is to be avoided. Borrowing or purchasing a used helmet which could have structural damage not visible to the eye should be avoided. A reputable tack shop will carry certified helmets and will be able to assist you in selecting a properly fitting helmet.
While wearing a pair of riding boots is a good idea they are not essential. Wear shoes/boots ...
Western riding in North America originated from the Spanish conquistadors in the 17th Century. As the conquistadors traveled to what is now Texas and California, this style of riding began to spread across the continent.
Both equipment and riding style evolved to meet the working needs of the cowboy in the American West. American cowboys needed to work long hours in the saddle over rough terrain, sometimes needing to rope cattle with a lariat (or lasso). Because of the necessity to control the horse with one hand and use a lariat with the other, western horses were trained to neck rein, that is, to change direction with light pressure of a rein against the horse's neck. Horses were also trained to exercise a certain degree of independence in using their natural instincts to follow the movements of a cow, thus a riding style developed that emphasized a deep, secure seat, and training methods encouraged a horse to be responsive on very light rein contact. Though there are significant differences in ...

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 ...

English riding is a form of horse riding seen throughout the world. There are many variations, but all feature a flat English saddle without the deep seat, high back or saddle horn seen on a Western saddle nor the knee pads seen on an Australian Stock Saddle. Saddles within the various English disciplines are all designed to allow the horse the freedom to move in the optimal manner for a given task, ranging from classical dressage to horse racing. English bridles also vary in style based on discipline, but most feature some type of noseband as well as closed reins, buckled together at the ends, that prevents them from dropping on the ground if a rider becomes unseated. Clothing for riders in competition is usually based on traditional needs from which a specific style of riding developed, but most standards require, as a minimum, boots; breeches or jodhpurs; a shirt with some form of tie or stock; a hat, cap, or equestrian helmet; and a jacket. English riding is an equestrian discipline with many different ...

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.

The Manitoba Horse Council (MHC) offers a special membership category for Recreational Riders!
This membership was created because we sincerely believe that the future of MHC lies in acquiring a strong recreational membership base. Equestrian competition will always be an important aspect of the work of the Manitoba Horse Council, but the reality is that most of the equestrian enthusiasts in Manitoba, and across the country, are not competitive. They are involved with horses and ponies of all types and breeds for the sheer love of the animal and the love of the outdoors. And theirs is a voice that has not been represented adequately through the provincial body for equestrians in this province.
This membership category helps to change that. It offers the opportunity for Recreational Riders and Drivers to join the ...

Kelly and Bonnie Campbell hosted their first show in 2014. Since then they have successfully been running shows mainly in the Brandon area - but we were so pleased when they also ran one at the Manitoba Equestrian Centre in Birds Hill Park. Their shows are highly professional and well organized - keeping in mind the objective of running a properly qualified show that is fun for the participants. The service they are providing means that there are more opportunities for equine enthusiasts to test their skills in the arena. We have been told by many that the special attention they pay to beginning riders is having a very positive impact on the sport. In addition to all of the good work they do they have also used part of their registration fees as a contribution to Breast Cancer Research. We are excited and honored to be awarding this award to Bonnie and Kelly Campbell - CAMPBELL SHOWS!
