> COVID-19 Precis of the April 28, 2021 Public Health Order as it affects equestrians

MHC is working closely with Sport Manitoba and the Province to clarify some of the regulations as they affect equestrian activities. We will post as soon as we are able. 

Regardless of the change in numbers allowed at events, the Covid positivity rates are rising.  MHC still requires that all show organisers, participants and attendees comply with the MB Government requirements of sanitizing, social distancing, mask wearing, contact tracing, waivers etc.

MHC can provide paid COVID prefects at many events who can help with all this.  

Please contact John Savard at [email protected] for more information.

Provincial guidelines may be amended from time to time and it is the facility/event organizer's responsibility to be aware of any changes. The website link gives current information as of the day an Order is applied.

A number of provincial and federal grants are noted in this link. Please take the time to review them, as eligibility has changed for some of the programs.
