Recognizing, reducing and responding to misconduct and abuse in sport.

The Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport calls for all sporting environments to be free from physical, sexual and psychological abuse.

Manitoba Horse Council believes in being proactive to ensure horse riding and equestrian sport is safe and enjoyable for all participants. As such, many of our Policies are there to protect our young athletes. Coach Education, through NCCP Programs and Respect in Sport are great ways to educate our members.

It includes three distinct pillars, each serving to create a sport environment that is Safe, Smart, and Secure. The three pillars are:
