Manitoba Horse Council Benefits

New!  As an MHC member, you will now receive a 15% discount on short courses offered on The Horse Portal.(up from 10% previously)

Members will earn continuing education credits and certificates of completion; in addition, Equestrian Canada certified instructors/coaches may apply these certificates towards their professional development credits.

Lifelong Learning – Your Responsibility

Each day, new scientific knowledge emerges on how to better care for horses.  It is everyone’s responsibility to stay current on best health and welfare practices and industry standards.

The exciting aspect of these courses is the opportunity to talk with knowledgeable professionals, and other interested horse owners, who are there to share their experiences and to answer your questions.

Whether you work with performance horses or have a backyard pony, these short flexible courses are for you!!  So, on behalf of our horses, we invite you to join our online community.


A knowledgeable horse industry is a strong industry

“At Manitoba Horse Council we recognize that our members have extensive knowledge and experience in working with horses. Taking part in these courses will help to expand that experience and knowledge and give you even greater confidence in working with your animals. This is a win-win for you and your equine partner.”
