A Partnership in Training and Certification

Manitoba Horse Council (MHC) is partnered with Equine Guelph to provide our members short, easily-accessible training programs so you can stay up-to-date on the latest information on equine care and welfare.  This partnership enables the MHC to offer continuing education and certification opportunities for our members – athletes, coaches, officials, recreational riders/drivers, facility owners and professional equine care-givers.


Manitoba Horse Council Benefits

MHC members receive a 15% discount on short courses offered on The Horse Portal.

Members will earn continuing education credits and certificates of completion from Equine Guelph – the horse owner’s centre at the University of Guelph.

In addition, Equestrian Canada certified instructors/coaches may apply these certificates towards their professional development credits.
