Recognizing and celebrating excellence is a way to boost our collective confidence and motivation.

The Manitoba Horse Council Annual Awards honour the achievements of deserving members within our equine community. These awards are a way to acknowledge those individuals who make a positive difference to our community and those who make significant strides in their discipline.

The Awards committee encourages those submitting nominations to include as much detail as possible to help define their nominee’s impact and achievement.
