In-competition evaluations are being planned for the summer season. Please call 204-925-5718 or email email@example.com for more details. The season is short: don't let another year pass by.
Manitoba Horse Council arranges Rider Level evaluations for those competent riders who wish to challenge the Levels prior to going forward to Instructor or Competition Coach/Specialist. If you do not have your own coach who can refer you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more. If you are working towards EC certified status, you will also be interested in the Fall Coaching Camp - see below.
New for Manitoba Horse Council is a Drive Instructor Evaluation. This is planned for Fall, and MHC will either be bringing in an Evaluator from Ontario or Alberta, or joining with Saskatchewan to run an Evaluation there. Prospective Drive Instructors need to pass driving tests (written and practical) in the same way as riders do. If you are interested please email email@example.com for more details.
Date and location depends on the courses you select. NCCP Professional Development points available for some modules, for certified coaches.
Registration deadline is September 15. (Past that date, a late fee will apply). Save $25 if you register for two modules by that date! When using the fillable form at the following link, please remember to SAVE it before sending. Thanks!
