Manitoba Horse Council

Manitoba Horse Council (MHC) is a not-for-profit organization representing clubs and individual members involved in equine activity in Manitoba. MHC is the recognized governing body for equestrian sport in the province; providing support, leadership and resources to develop athletes and protect the interests of Manitoba's equestrian enthusiasts.

> The Manitoba Horse Council office is closed to personal visitors until further notice, however John Savard and Linda Hazelwood can be reached by phone and email during normal business hours.

PLEASE NOTE - In Phase 2, competitions are not yet allowed. MHC and its member clubs are currently working on a Return to Competition draft protocol for approval once it is seen that equestrian sports can be opened up safely to training events.

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

> All businesses and venues are required to continue following physical distancing and stringent cleaning practices to protect both employees and customers. Changes in reopening schedules are at

Please note that provincial guidelines are being amended regularly as the province opens up so we recommend that you look to the website link above if you are unsure.
